The Future of Local Government Review has been commissioned by the Tasmanian Government to ensure our system of local government is robust, capable, and ready for the challenges and opportunities of the future. The Review is an ambitious, generational opportunity to explore the role, function, and design of local government in Tasmania.
The Minister for Local Government and Planning, the Hon Roger Jaensch MP, has appointed five members to the Local Government Board established under the Local Government Act 1993, which also includes the Director of Local Government, to undertake the Review. The Board is chaired by the Hon Sue Smith AM.
The Future of Local Government Review commenced on 20 January 2022 and will take approximately 18 months to complete.
