Supporting sustainable growth and regional development in Melbourne's west

About LeadWest

Melbourne’s West is, by any measure, a region of opportunity for Victoria and Australia. People and businesses are voting with their feet. Over the past decade all the communities of the West, whether suburbs established in the 19th century, middle ring districts or growth areas, have experienced strong growth.

LeadWest is the regional organisation for Melbourne's West. LeadWest is focused on advocacy for the region. We are a nonpartisan and not-for-profit, membership-based organisation.

LeadWest's membership includes all six local governments in Melbourne's West and they are joined by major companies and other organisations, each with substantial operations or interests that are based in Melbourne's west.

LeadWest also has a growing number of Affiliates, primarily not-for-profit organisations and each playing a significant role in our region.

Please contact us if you need more information on sustainable growth and development in Melbourne's West.
