New Submission to the TasCOSS Vault

Review of Tasmania’s Local Government Legislation Framework

TasCOSS believes a contemporary Local Government Act should include a commitment to reducing social disadvantage and provide a framework for local government to deliver:

  • high-quality services for all in the community;
  • land at an affordable cost to all people; and
  • broad public participation with genuine consultation.

The focus of our submission is on three broad principles we believe will help deliver these: governance and community engagement; minimising red tape and administrative burden; and improving overall services and delivery.
