Lobbying Councillors

The Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) has produced a guide for councillors, constituents and other interested parties on lobbying local government councillors.

Lobbying is common in local government and the ICAC has a view that appropriate lobbying of councillors is normal and is seen as part of the democratic process.

It is in the public interest that lobbying is fair and does not undermine public confidence in impartial decision making.
