The Council LEAD Project was funded in 2000 and 2001 by the NSW Environmental Trust to assist Local Government Councils in NSW protect their communities from lead and related hazards.

The Project offered education and support to Local Government in NSW so that Councils could easily take steps in accordance with their capacities and their community’s lead risk profile.

The Project continued the Local Government lead education program of the former NSW Lead Reference Centre (LRC). The LRC held a series of regional workshops for Councils on lead and published Management of Lead Contamination [DRAFT] for Local Government in late 1999. The document was finalised in 2003 as Managing Lead Contamination in Home Maintenance, Renovation and Demolition Practices: A Guide for Councils [including an example Development Control Plan (DCP) for lead] hard copies are available from Pollution Line (ph 131 555) or the Global Lead Advice and Support Service (GLASS) on +61 2 9716 0132 or free call within Australia 1800 626 086.

A Steering Committee oversaw the Project, with representatives from the Local Government and Shires Associations (LGSA), the Total Environment Centre (TEC), the Department of Urban Affairs and Planning (DUAP), WorkCover NSW, Lake Macquarie Council, CTI Consultants Pty Ltd (Lead Assessors) and The LEAD Group. The LEAD Group, which carried out the Project, also operates the Global Lead Advice and Support Service (GLASS) incorporating the Lead Advisory Service Australia, which forms part of the support services offered to all NSW Local Government Councils.
