The Awards honour local governments for their effort in making a difference in their communities and showcase the innovative solutions that demonstrate leading practices, deliver quality services and better outcomes for communities, and have the potential to be replicated across the country.

There are five award categories:

  • Environmental Leadership and Sustainability Award

The awards were presented at the 2020 Local Government Meeting in Canberra. Finalists and winners can be viewed below with LG Professionals Australia’s and the local government sector’s congratulations.
