Planning and EnvironmentClimateChangeWaste andRecycling Illegal DumpingToolkitPlanning and Development Local government plays a key role in both planning and environmental policy in the community, and holds key responsibilities in each sector. While local government has always played an important role in planning, property rates and services, the sector today also holds responsibilities for development assessment and is involved in environmental management. Councils implement both their own and state driven environmental policies, with the LGA contributing project support and resources to help them to work collaboratively. Planning and environmental policy are an important way in which the LGA supports councils to help build communities and equip councils for the future.
