LG Act 2009 - Department of Infrastructure & Planning Resource Material
For the community
The Department has revised a number of former publications to help the wider community understand the intent and provisions of the new Act and how they can input into council decision-making processes and otherwise interact with their councils. These resources are now online and include the following:
- How your council works for you
- Council rates and charges
- Resolving issues and complaints with your local Council
The Department is continuing to develop a range of other publications to assist local government practitioners such as councils and ratepayers and other members of the community to further understand the new legislation and comply with its provisions. These tools will be uploaded on to the Department's website as they become available.
