About the Bill
The draft Local Government Bill aims to strengthen the Local Government Act 2008 to provide clarity on local government processes and to assist councils and local authorities with their work.
The Local Government Act 2008 has provided a strong governing model for the local government sector as the sector has developed over recent years, to include the introduction of local authorities for example. However, with this growth, key stakeholders have identified areas where the legislation could be strengthened to work more effectively for the benefit of Territorians, councils and local authorities.
