Sections 66 to 72 of the Local Government Act 1993 outline the legal requirements regarding strategic planning. 

There are two Ministerial Orders relating to strategic planning, which are the Local Government (Content of Plans and Strategies) Order 2014 and the Local Government (Management Indicators) Order 2014 (S.R. 2014, No. 36). The Local Government Act and the Orders are available on the Tasmanian Consolidated Legislation Online website.

The Local Government Division’s website also contains a number of resources that are relevant to this section, including the Tasmanian Local Government Asset Management Policy, Annual Report Guidelines, and Local Government Audit Panels - A Practice Guide.

Other useful resources are available on the Tasmanian Audit Office website.

The Audit Act 2008 requires the Auditor-General to audit Tasmanian councils’ financial statements annually. You can access the Audit Act 2008 on the Tasmanian Consolidated Legislation Online website.
