From time to time, the South West Group prepares media releases for publication in local and/or State press.

Most recently, media releases have been prepared in the lead up to Federal and State elections as a means of raising awareness and gaining community support for priorities advocated on behalf of the South West Metropolitan Region.

The Chair of the South West Group Board authorises the content and distribution of media releases, noting that local and State press are not obliged to publish media releases and it may be necessary to purchase advertorial space to ensure media release information is published accurately and in a timely manner.
