Local Government Regulatory Functions in NSW

The NSW Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) was given a reference to review local government compliance and enforcement activity.  To assist IPART, Stenning & Associates developed a register of all regulatory functions affecting third parties that are delegated by legislation to NSW local councils. 

This involved analysing over 500 pieces of legislation to identify and describing those regulatory functions delegated to local government by NSW state legislation/ regulations.  The resulting report and register has informed IPART’s review of local government compliance and enforcement activity.
