Local Government Reform

In August 2016 Cabinet approved the Draft Policy on Local Government Reform.

To create this draft policy, the Ministry of Rural Development and Local Government conducted one public consultation in each of the fourteen (14) Municipal Corporations, as well as one consultation in Tobago.

Using the data collected and public feedback coming out of these consultations, the Ministry was able to draft a policy on Local Government Reform which is community-driven and entails a greater level of autonomy and accountability for the Municipal Corporation.

Our aim is to bring local government closer to YOU!
