WALGA consults with its Members on a variety of topics to inform our advocacy and service offering to Members.

The scope of our requests for feedback reflects the range of operations conducted by Local Government.
Please see below for items for which we are currently seeking feedback from our Members.

Review of the Local Government Act - Submission Deadline

WALGA is requesting Local Governments to provide a submission to WALGA on stage 2 of the Local Government Act Review process.

Our intention is to provide a means for Local Governments to offer submissions on any aspect of the 11 themes discussed under the ‘Smart, Agile, Inclusive’ headings provided by the Department of Local Government, Sport & Cultural Industries or any other matter of interest that can feed into the Act review process.
 
Responses would be appreciated by Friday, 22 February so that an agenda item can be presented to the Zone Meetings leading up to the March State Council Meeting.

Submit response by emailing the Governance Team.

For more information, email Executive Manager, Governance and Organisational Services Tony Brown or call 9213 2051.

Review of Shared Path Guidelines and LATM Cycling Guidelines

The Department of Transport has engaged consultants to review and update the Shared Path Guidelines and the Local Area Traffic Management Cycling Guidelines which are both currently in draft format.

These guidelines were developed in 2015/16 with the aim of combining best practices, innovation and standards and to complement and enhance the Austroads and MRWA technical standards and guidelines.
 
Consultation on both guidelines has previously been undertaken, however to capture new innovations and best practice this review is required.
 
WALGA has prepared an InfoPage that provides more details of both the guidelines and this review.
 
Local Governments are encouraged to review the current draft guidelines here and provide feedback to WALGA by Friday, 1 February.

 For more information and to provide feedback, email Policy Officer, Transport and Roads, Marissa MacDonald or call 9213 2050.
