Services for local governments


The Department of Local Government and Communities provides support and advisory services to 140 local governments, including those in the Indian Ocean Territories.

These services are available to about 1,350 elected members, senior staff of local government and members of the public. They are aimed at improving the capacity of local governments to respond to community demands and expectations, and at improving levels of accountability and legislative compliance. A telephone support service – the Local Government Advisory Hotline – is also available to local government officers and elected members.
