How Council Works
Local Government is one of three spheres of government in Australia, namely Local, State and Commonwealth.
Local Government councils have considerable discretion in exercising their powers and responsibilities, and in planning for the specific and diverse needs of their local communities.
Councils are well placed to understand the views and needs of the local community and to influence the sort of place the Council area will be.
Currently, Local Government in SA is made up of 68 councils covering metropolitan Adelaide and the more densely populated country areas.
