As the peak body representing local government in Australia, ALGA makes numerous submissions and presentations to a broad range of organisations and bodies. These include:

  • Parliamentary committees conducting inquiries of interest and relevance to local government
  • National organisations conducting inquiries and studies, such as the Productivity Commission
  • Political parties and individual parliamentarians
  • The Australian Government, its ministers, departments and agencies
  • International bodies and agencies

These submissions advance the interests of local government and address issues of concern to councils and the communities they collectively serve.

Submission to the Senate Select Committee inquiry into reform of the Australian Federation

ALGA welcomes the Senate Select Committee Inquiry on the Reform of the Australian Federation. In this submission, ALGA outlines the reasons why it believes that reforms that support the role of local government must be made to the Australian Federation. The submission describes the evolving role of local government since it was first established in Australia in 1840, and the relationship it has had with the Commonwealth over recent decades. Particular issues canvassed in the submission include the intergovernmental funding of local government and the need for reforms to the nation's Constitution so that uncertainties affecting the position of local government are overcome. ALGA puts the case for a Parliamentary Inquiry into Financial Assistance Grants, and a referendum to recognise local government in this term of the Parliament.
