The Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries (DLGSC) is committed to supporting a robust local government sector to achieve positive outcomes for communities in Western Australia.
A key priority for DLGSC is to develop a supporting environment that provides local governments with necessary tools to build a transparent, accountable and innovative sector.
To do this, DLGSC is partnering with LG Professionals WA to hold a series of webinars which aims to improve sector capacity building through collaboration, education and providing best practice tools and resources.
At the next webinar we will be discussing:
- An update on Local Government Amendment Act 2023 and commencement of operative provisions
- DLGSC's Regulatory Approach
The Department of Local Government Sport and Cultural Industries (DLGSC) has recently adopted a regulatory approach that outlines the DLGSC's approach and strategy for supporting and enforcing effective regulation of the local government sector within WA. It also provides clarity over how DLGSC regulatory activities fit within the broader local government environment, the specific functions DLGSC will undertake, and the role that peak bodies will play in supporting local governments.
Updated on 25/5/23, this webinar will now also include:
A presentation by John Dixon, Director Office of Digital Government on the proposed privacy and responsible information sharing (PRIS) legislation and the resources available to help local governments prepare for these landmark reforms.
