Regional Local Governments

The Local Government Act 1995 refers to Regional Local Governments in Part 3 (Division 4) as ‘Two or more Local Governments’
who may (subject to the Minister’s approval) ‘establish a regional Local Government to do things, for the participants, for any
purpose for which a Local Government can do things under this Act or any other Act’.

Regional Local Governments or Regional Councils (as they are often known) may exist in specialist areas such as waste
management and are formed to oversee management of a particular function. A landfill site, for example, may serve six Local
Governments, rather than each of them having individual facilities. A Regional Council may then be established, consisting of
members of each Council, to manage this facility.
