Governance in local government

Good governance in local government requires councils to work towards:

  • participation
  • consensus
  • accountability
  • transparency
  • responsiveness
  • efficiency
  • equitability
  • legal compliance 

Good governance is critical to forming and maintaining both internal and external relationships that are positive for all parties.

We provide sector-wide advice on governance issues and assist individual councils on a broad range of internal and external governance matters.
