Established in 1973, the Western Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils (WSROC) represents nine local councils in Western Sydney - Blacktown, Blue Mountains, Canterbury-Bankstown, Cumberland, Fairfield, Hawkesbury, Liverpool, Parramatta and Penrith.

With a reputation for considered policy analysis and bipartisan advocacy, WSROC brings a collective voice to those issues which are crucial for Western Sydney's growing population.

WSROC's ongoing commitment to the region is demonstrated by its joint procurement programs, co-funded project work and shared community activities.
