The Local Government Legislation Amendment Act 2019 introduced a range of new reforms when it was passed by Parliament in June 2019.
To assist with implementing the new reforms, the checklist below has been developed to clarify the provisions that have already taken effect where specific action is required by local governments.
Further regulations will be gazetted in the coming months which will increase the information that needs to be made available online and in the annual report. The regulations will also give effect to the new public notice requirements and harmonisation of authorised people.
For more information on the reforms, including the changes to the gift framework that took effect on 20 October 2019, visit the department’s website.
Reminder: The draft Code of Conduct and CEO Standards are currently out for consultation. Submissions close on 6 December.
