Phase 1 Consultation Overview

The Government released a Discussion Paper in December 2018 seeking feedback on the principles that should underpin a local government legislative framework.

The consultation period closed on 1 March 2019. Three hundred and eighty two submissions were received from members of the community, the local government sector, businesses, representative groups and other interested stakeholders. You can view these submissions on the Phase 1 Submissions page.

Consultation sessions were held around the State throughout February, giving the community and interested stakeholders an opportunity to engage with the Project Team and discuss the Review. There will be additional opportunities for consultation throughout the second and third phases of the Review.

Further information on the progress of the Review will be available on this webpage or alternatively, you can contact the Project Team via email at or by phoning (03) 6232 7643.
