Greater Merrylands Partnership Forums

The Greater Merrylands Partnership will bring together diverse stakeholders from, or focussed on, the Cumberland LGA who share an interest in the economic and social progress of Merrylands and the broader surrounding local areas.

We aim to harness this group’s influence to encourage State & Federal agencies, business, community groups and other stakeholders to work together to unlock the opportunities to improve local amenity, grow jobs, highlight any social and economic infrastructure needs, and help enhance its reputation.
