The Minister for Local Government released the exposure draft of the Local Government Bill 2018 today, which will, if passed, repeal and replace the Local Government Act 1989.

The exposure draft will be open for public comment from today until 23 February 2018.

Maddocks will review the exposure draft and provide general observations over the next couple of months – so watch this space.

Be sure to read the exposure draft and compile your council’s submission before 23 February 2018. It is the perfect summer reading after all.
