We have made a submission to the Local Government Bill 2019 which was
developed following consultation with our Governance Special Interest
Group, Board Members and Local Government Chief Executive Officers.
This is in addition to our original submission to the Local Government Amendment Bill 2018 made in 2018.
LGPro generally supports the new Bill and the additional reforms which
we believe will produce a more responsive, community focused, and
positive legislative platform for Victorian Local Government.
Our submission outlines the areas that we believe require further
refinement and advice to the sector through the Regulations and
Guidance/Practice notes and development of Governance Frameworks that
will suit small, medium and large Councils.
