VLGA DISCUSS Local Government Act 2020  Online Consultations Commence

Monday, 20 April 2020
VLGA Discuss

Local Government Victoria has consulted with its Project Control Board (PCB) and announced the next phase of consultation associated with the introduction of the Local Government Act 2020 (Act 2020). The PCB was established in late 2019 to guide implementation of the Act and membership includes representatives from the VLGA, MAV, LGPro, and Rural Councils Victoria.

Timing of the first workshops for the co-design of Governance Rules, Public Transparency Policy, Delegated Committees and Asset Committees, and Community Engagement Policy has been released. The objectives of the workshops are to support “a sector led, consultative and co-design approach for the requirements within the Act 2020 where the materials developed are fit for purpose, scalable to each council’s circumstance and shared widely”.

Each workshop is a brainstorming session and will be approximately 20 minutes. If you are not able to participate in a scheduled session, all of the ideas will be made available on the Engage Victoria website and you can continue to contribute and help to prioritise the types of products and support material required.
