Lord Mayor Nuatali Nelmes & Newcastle Labor
As Lord Mayor, I’m focused on showcasing Newcastle as a smart, livable and sustainable city. 

Delivering for Newcastle

The Labor team work everyday to deliver for our city, but there is always more to do. 

Since being elected Lord Mayor in 2015, I have worked with Newcastle Labor's Councillors to oversee the delivery of:

  • Upgrades to roads, footpaths and parks across Newcastle
  • Construction of the Bathers Way coastal walk
  • A record setting Supercars event, with over 190,000 visitors to the city over three days
  • A park-and-ride scheme from Hunter Stadium to the City to reduce congestion and ease parking pressure
  • and much more. 


$90 Million infrastructure budget

Delivering new road and footpath upgrades across Newcastle, as well as new playgrounds and coastal walkways.



Six kilometre bathers way 

Our stunning beaches are on display as part of the 6km Bathers Way upgrade. This coastal walkway is now 2/3 complete and a highlight for locals and visitors alike.  



$4 Million budget surplus 2017/18

Strong economic management has seen Council reduce the infrastructure backlog inherited from the previous Council while maintaining a budget surplus.
