Future of Local Government Review

The Tasmanian Government has commissioned the Local Government Board to undertake a Review of the role, function, and design of local government in Tasmania.

What is the Future of Local Government Review?

The review will focus on the roles and functions of local government, not the performance of individual Councils.

It aims to ensure our system of local government is robust, capable, and ready for the challenges and opportunities of the future.

The scope of the review covers:

  • Statutory functions (eg land use planning);
  • Service delivery (eg waste management, road maintenance);
  • Governance and administration (eg asset management); and
  • Community/place-based roles (eg strategic planning, advocacy).

The review is anticipated to take 18 months and will be broken in to three, six month stages.

What are the stages of the Review?
