New resources now available for councils

An ornate building with the words

The Inspectorate has created new resources to help councils improve compliance with the Local Government Act 2020(opens in a new window). The new resources for councils section on our website and groups together practical advice for councils, councillors and governance staff.

Recent feedback from council governance staff, CEOs and councillors – during informal discussions, at council briefings and through our online survey – has called for clear guidance and information.

Our advice and information is in addition to the guidance material being provided or in development by Local Government Victoria. It is based on information we have received during the course of our investigations and examinations.

Resources available includes:

  • fact sheets
  • report summaries
  • case studies
  • best practice council policies
  • trends in examination trends.

We aim to increase the number of materials in the coming months. If you have any suggestions for additional resources, please get in touch.
