Independent Local Government Review Panel

In March and April 2014 Local Government NSW (LGNSW) held a series of statewide Leaders Forums on the Independent Local Government Review Panel’s Final Report “Revitalising Local Government”. The report has far-reaching implications for the future of Local Government in NSW and it is critical that Local Government steers the outcomes.
The Forums provided the opportunity to deliberate on the findings and recommendations of the report. LGNSW considered councils’ feedback when framing its response and has now made its final submission.
