About Good Governance


The Good Governance Guide has been produced as a resource for Tasmanian local government elected members. It aims to help build a better understanding of, promote and enhance good governance in local government.

Local government plays a critical role in Tasmania: councils help to build resilient communities, contribute to the development of a healthy environment, and promote local economies. Good governance is critical to local government’s success in carrying out these roles.

This section looks at what good governance means and why it is important.
