Membership of the Council is generally open to service utilities, local government and road authorities, light rail operators and relevant government regulatory bodies. Membership may also include consulting and other groups who have an ongoing interest in street services, such as the providers or operators of underground oil or gas pipelines.

In recent years there have been significant changes in the operational environments of both utility/service providers and local councils. Corporatisation and the introduction of competitive tendering, together with community service obligations, have sharpened the focus on achieving cooperative and efficient practices.
