The Department of Local Government and Communities (DLGC) administers a number of acts of parliament covering a wide range of issues, and develops and amends acts and regulations within its responsibility. The process to develop and/or amend legislation is complex and involves a number of steps. Each step is an important and necessary stage in the development or amendment process. Visit the Department of the Attorney General for information about this process.

DLGC ensures that its legislative processes are in keeping with the requirements of the State Government’s Regulatory Impact Assessment process. For more information visit the Department of Finance.
