Local Advisory Groups

Purpose

Regional Local Community Advisory Groups have been established to provide advice to our Boards on activities and programs focused on community engagement.

They look at the effectiveness of Local Land Services' engagement with the community and address specific issues at the request of our Boards.

Local Community Advisory Groups are a legislative requirement to ensure we are meeting our community's needs.

We have established six Community Advisory Groups in the Western Region – three Local Community Advisory Groups (LCAGs) and three Aboriginal Community Advisory Groups (ACAGs). They are comprised of representatives from a variety of backgrounds to ensure that a broad range of views from the community are considered.

Each group convenes several times a year to discuss issues and identify opportunities for the Western Local Board and management to consider. If you have any feedback on our programs and projects or an idea about how we can better service your local area, we encourage you to get in touch with the Chair of the Community Advisory Group nearest you.
