The NSW Government asked IPART to examine local government compliance and enforcement activity (including regulatory powers delegated under NSW legislation) and provide recommendations to reduce unnecessary regulatory burdens for business and the community.  Our final report considers ways to improve the capacity and capability of councils, and the quality of regulatory administration.

We delivered our final report to the Minister for Local Government in October 2014. The final report has been released on 21 June 2019.
