NT GOVERNMENT AND THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT SECTOR
As part of its inter-government relations LGANT supports cooperation between the three spheres of government to ensure good governance which promotes the well being of Territorians overall. To do this, LGANT is committed to strengthening and formalising its relationship with the Northern Territory Government through partnership agreements and projects.
LGANT believes that the system of local government in the Northern Territory should consist of a number of local governments and the Local Government Association of the NT.
LGANT recognises that the needs of local communities are best addressed when Local Government is accepted as an equal partner by the other two spheres of government and has shared legislative and financial responsibilities in the development of relevant policies and programs that affect all NT local government areas.
