The State Government has commenced a review of Tasmania’s Local Government Legislation Framework.

The first phase of the review is underway and a Discussion Paper has been released that seeks broad input on the principles that should be embodied in a future local government legislative framework.

Submissions are invited on how the sector should be governed and what should be considered in developing a new legislative framework that will best support local government and its communities into the future. Information provided as part of these submissions will help inform future reform positions.

Submissions can be made by any of the following methods:

Local Government Legislation Review
Local Government Division
GPO Box 123

Submissions close at 5.00pm on 1 March 2019.

More information on the review, governance, terms of reference, scope, timeframes and submission process can be found here.
