Unleashing Capacity in Western Australian Local Governments, 15 February 2017

Today, LG Professionals WA, released Bigger Impact. Better Outcomes: Unleashing Capacity within Western Australian Local Governments.

In this document, our Association puts forward practical solutions to improve the performance of local governments by freeing up existing capacity from within the sector, so that local governments can make a bigger impact and deliver better outcomes for their communities.

“The current framework, the Local Government Act 1995, treats all local governments the same. The same framework that exists for the largest local government, also exists for the smallest. This plainly makes little sense, when there are such vast differences in size and scale between local governments,” said LG Professionals WA Chief Executive Officer, Warren Pearce.
