Final Report of Local Government Review Panel
on Tuesday, 05 November 2013.
The Independent Local Government Review Panel was appointed by the NSW Government in April 2012, following an approach by the then Local Government and Shires Associations (now combined as 'Local Government NSW'). Its task has been to formulate options for governance models, structures and boundary changes:
1. To improve the strength and effectiveness of local government
2. To help drive the key strategic directions set out in the Destination 2036 Action Plan, and to further the objectives of NSW 2021: A Plan to Make NSW Number One (the State Plan).
In 2012, the Minister for Local Government, the Hon Don Page MP appointed the Local Government Acts Taskforce to rewrite the Local Government Act 1993 (the Act) and review the City of Sydney Act 1988 (CoSA).
