Policy Priorities

WALGA amplifies the voice of Local Government and brings sector positions directly to key decision makers. The breadth of issues facing the sector is wide but in order to maximise advocacy outcomes for Local Governments, WALGA has identified those issues of most important for 2023 in a Policy Priorities document.

WALGA will develop an advocacy strategy for identified policy priorities, including actions, engagement, timeframes, and outcomes sought.
