Have your say on how our local councils can become more effective, efficient and deliver better outcomes for their communities.

The South Australian Government is seeking your feedback on the Local Government Reform Discussion Paper.

Councils play an important role in our community and operate within a legislative framework which includes the Local Government Act 1999 and Local Government (Elections) Act 1999. This legislation is currently being reviewed to ensure all of our local councils are productive and operating well.

The discussion paper outlines key issues and puts forward a range of models and proposed solutions for each reform area – Council membership and conduct; financial accountability; voting and election procedures; and statutory requirements.

Your feedback is sought on the proposals in each of the four reform areas and suggestions are invited for any new ideas and alternative proposals that address key issues.

Your feedback will help to determine what models and solutions should be included in reform legislation for Local Government which will be introduced into Parliament in the first quarter of 2020.
