Performance benchmarking of Australian business regulation: the role of local government as regulator

18 Jul 2012
Description

This report is the latest in a series, initiated by COAG, directed at benchmarking different areas of state and territory regulation in terms of the relative burdens on business.
For this study, the Commission was asked to examine the extent to which different approaches to exercising regulatory responsibilities by local governments affect costs incurred by business. It has also looked at how the relations between state/territory government and local governments are structured. It is the first such study comparing the regulatory roles of local government across Australia.
The Commission has identified a range of ‘leading practices’ for local government that would significantly improve governance and enhance the transparency, accountability and cost-effectiveness of business-related regulation.
