17 Sep 2012 Issues Paper Issues Paper
This Issues Paper discusses questions for IPART’s regulation review of Local Government Compliance and Enforcement. We seek information from businesses, local councils and the broader community on specific local government compliance and enforcement activities that are imposing unnecessary regulatory costs (red tape) on business and the community; impediments to local government applying better enforcement practices; and ideas for reform to reduce red tape.
