Two years ago UDIA presented a sundowner series highlighting
Local Governments that were doing a good job in the approvals system to
highlight best practice and improve the understanding of all stakeholders about
the priorities of the development industry.
The challenge was how to identify those Councils that were displaying good or
best practice. That was when it was decided to undertake a survey of UDIA (WA)
members to capture the good practice of Local Governments .
We had initial discussions with key Councils in growth areas and the Institute
of Public Works Engineers Australia (IPWEA). A valid suggestion was to
make it a 360 survey, with the first part looking at local government through
the eyes of the development industry with the second part looking at good
practice from the perspective of the local government.
With input from WALGA we have created the first of the two surveys and we would
like your opinion on local government practice. We recognise that local
governments are structured differently but we have endeavoured to capture the
activities through the following operational areas:
The survey should
take less than five minutes to complete as the sections which are not
applicable to you can be skipped.

Government Best Practice Survey
This survey will
close on Sunday night February 1, with results being released at the UDIA WA
Presidents’ Summit on February 13, 2015.
Thank you for your
time and assistance.
