Promoting Better Practice in local government

The Promoting Better Practice program aims to assist in strengthening the local government sector by assessing council performance, promoting continuous improvement, facilitating self-assessment, and sharing better practice.

Promoting better practice includes:

  • working with councils to identify, share and promote better practice with an emphasis on:
    • strategic community planning
    • efficient and effective service delivery
    • quality governance and ethical conduct
    • financial sustainability.
  • working cooperatively with councils to promote strong relationships within the sector.
  • providing councils with feedback on areas requiring improvement or further development, and assisting them in developing solutions.
  • identifying trends and issues arising from council reviews to support policy and legislative changes for the local government sector.
  • encouraging and facilitating innovation by responding creatively to identified trends and issues.
