The Premier asked IPART to conduct a review to identify inefficient, unnecessary or excessive burdens placed on local government by the NSW Government in the form of planning, reporting and compliance obligations, and to make recommendations for how these burdens can be reduced. While we have identified improvements across a range of obligations, our recommendations to address issues in the areas of planning, administration and governance, as well as some systemic issues, would bring the greatest improvements in the efficiency of councils.

We delivered our final report to the Minister for Local Government in April 2016. The final report has been released on 21 June 2019.
