  •     ISBN 1834‐9854  Parliament of Australia Department of Parliamentary Services   RESEARCH PAPER NO. 10, 2010-11  31 January 2011 Local government and the Commonwealth: an evolving  relationship  Dr Lyndon Megarrity  Politics and Public Administration  Executive summary  • This paper provides a broad historical overview of Australian local government and its  relationship with the Commonwealth, with some discussion of contemporary issues. It shows  how the Commonwealth has come to play an important policy role in local government and how  that relationship has evolved through time. The paper does not, however, attempt to give a  detailed account of specific technical aspects of the local government experience such as  financial administration. A strong theme in this paper is the long‐held desire among local  governments for greater autonomy and funding to match their increasingly heavy administrative  and social role.  • Each state, as well as the Northern Territory (NT), has a system of local government, created by  state/territory legislation: the states and the NT may restructure their local government system  at any time. Each local government authority provides services to a specific, geographically‐ defined community, covering a broad range of civic responsibilities, from infrastructure to  human services. Its responsibilities continue to grow according to local demand.  • Local governments have been established since the nineteenth century. The growth in local  government activity since 1945 has encouraged local authorities to seek increasing subsidies  from the Commonwealth government.  • Commonwealth funding of local government projects such as roads has been most prominent in  recent times, especially after Prime Minister Gough Whitlam’s unprecedented interest in local  government policy between 1972 and 1975.  • Because local government is not mentioned in the Australian Constitution, the Commonwealth  government has generally been compelled to provide subsidies to local government indirectly:  that is, through the states. An attempt by the Whitlam Government to enshrine a direct financial  link between the Commonwealth and local government within the Australian Constitution failed  when put to the people via referendum. A subsequent referendum proposal by the Hawke  Government to provide constitutional recognition to local government also failed. Both the  Whitlam and Hawke Governments were unable to convince the electorate that the federal  system required reform.
