 Commencement of Phase 1 Amendments – An Overview

 

What’s new or changing

The Office of Local Government has received questions about the commencement dates of amendments to the Local Government Act 1993 made by the Local Government Amendment (Governance and Planning) Act 2016 (the Phase 1 Amendments).

 

What this will mean for your council

A table outlining the commencement date for each of the Phase 1 amendments is attached to this circular. The table also identifies those provisions that are yet to commence.

 

Key points

  • The previous circulars referred to above provide further details of amendments that have already commenced.
  • Some provisions have not yet commenced, in order to allow for consultation and the development of supporting regulatory frameworks. The consultation process for many of these has commenced and the supporting regulatory frameworks are currently under development.
  • Councils will be advised by circular when these provisions are being commenced and will be given sufficient notice to allow them to implement and comply with new requirements.

 

Where to go for further information

  • For further information, contact the Office’s Council Governance Team on 4428 4100 or by email at olg@olg.nsw.gov.au.
