Guide to Local Government

To help Victorians understand more about local councils and their role in building stronger local communities, the Victorian Government has put together a web-based Guide to Local Government.

The Guide is a great way for all Victorians to learn more about local government and to understand what their council is doing in their community every day.

It has information about how councils work, how they make decisions, what services they are responsible for delivering, how they are funded, and much more.

The Guide should not be regarded as representing professional or legal advice, and professional or legal advice should be sought before acting on any serious matter.

The Guide was produced and is managed by Local Government Victoria.
