Meeting Procedures (Standing Orders) Local Laws have been the foundation for facilitating efficient and effective Council and Committee meetings.

The State Government’s Local Government Reform includes the proposal for replacing local laws with Standard Meeting Procedures Regulation. The Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries is consulting on proposals, with feedback required to the Department by 29 May 2024. Local Governments are encouraged to provide their feedback to the Department.

WALGA has prepared a Discussion Paper that combines the Department’s Consultation Paper with comment to provoke thought and considered response. 

We are seeking your Local Government’s feedback, consolidating administrative and Council Member views. WALGA will use Local Government feedback to develop a sector-wide advocacy position for submission to the Department.

All responses are to be sent to James McGovern via by Monday, 29 April 2024.
