The Property Council's Tasmanian division has reignited the local government reform debate.
Not since 1997, has there been such a serious call for reform - and yet the current structure of 29 councils and 281 councillors for a population of 506,000 is failing to meet the needs of the Tasmanian community.
Here's how the Property Council is leading the fight for reform:
+ Deloitte Access Economics report - the Property Council commissioned Deloitte to analyse the efficiency gains to be had by a restructure of local government. MORE
+ Polling - the Property Council has released polling by Enterprise Marketing and Research. The results overwhelmingly support the need for reform. MORE
+ Tasmanians for Reform - the Property Council has created the largest coalition of peak bodies in Tasmania's history to support the cause. MORE
