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.
