Review of Tasmania's Local Government Legislation Framework

The Tasmanian Government has released the Reform Directions Paper as phase 2 of this Review.


The Tasmanian Government has released the Reform Directions paper as phase 2 of this Review.  The Paper contains feedback from the consultation undertaken earlier this year and provides for 51 reform directions.



Consultation sessions for the proposed reform directions are being held around the State in July and August 2019.  Sessions will be facilitated and will include the opportunity to ask questions or seek further information.  The nearest session for Kentish residents will be:

Ulverstone Surf Life Saving Club                                 31st July 2019

Beach Road, ULVERSTONE                                         5.30pm – 7.00pm

RSVP’s may be submitted via the DPAC website.


Submissions are invited on the proposed reform directions and close on 30 September 2019.  You are not required to address all the proposed reforms if you do not wish to do so.  A survey supports this paper which allows you to rate your support or otherwise for the proposed reforms.  You may wish to complete this survey rather than make a submission, although both are welcome. Submissions can be made by either:


-          Completing the survey at or

-          Writing to or calling the Review Project team.
