Policy and Sector Development Group
The focus of this group is on strengthening the local government sector. The group is responsible for providing leadership and guidance on council governance issues, the provision of policy advice, and engagement with councils on current and emerging issues.

When required, the group leads targeted interventions with councils and councillors. It is responsible for monitoring council performance and delivering programs including the Responsible Pet Ownership Program. The group is also responsible for the review and assessment of all statutory applications to OLG, and administering council grants programs.
