About Us

Local Government in Western Australia is established under the Local Government Act 1995 and is the third sphere of government in Australia. Local Government has legislative responsibility for many functions and activities that are relevant to a local community. As the level of government often seen as “closest” to the population, local government activities relate to matters that are fundamental to people’s lives and impact strongly on their quality of life.
