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.

Western Local Land Services have established six Community Advisory Groups in the Western region – three Local Community Advisory Groups (LCAG) and three Aboriginal Community Advisory Groups (ACAG). 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 Western Local Land Services 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.

Get involved and be a voice for your local area

The terms of all LCAG members have expired (June 2017) and as such the Western Local Board is calling for Expressions of Interest (EOI) to fill these positions.

The Western Local Board is encouraging community members that are passionate about the Western region to nominate for a position that will work closely with the Board and Western Local Land Services to help develop and deliver vital services throughout the Western region. 

The current chairs of the three LCAG have recommitted to another 12 months in their roles.  

Before submitting an EOI, all interested parties should read the Terms of Reference beforehand, which are available on this website or can be picked up from your nearest Western Local Land Services office.

EOIs are due by 21 July 2017.
