DRAFT REPORT FOR ELECTRICITY PRICING GUIDELINE

The LGAQ provided a comprehensive submission to the Queensland Productivity Commission on 11 March 2016.
Submission perspective: The LGAQ supports a number of the QPC’s recommendations focussing on:

Recommendation 16 (deferral of network capital expenditure)
Recommendation 29 (transparency of Uniform Tariff Policy)
Recommendations 30 & 31 (transition of the Community Service Obligation)
Recommendation 35 (removal of non-reversion policy)
Recommendations 41 & 43 (community based solutions to electricity supply)
Recommendations 37 & 52 (improved data for network tariff reform)
Recommendation 54 (community housing stocks)

Noting the above, the LGAQ has once again raised concerns regarding the implementation of demand charging particularly at sites with uncontrollable demand.

SUBMISSION DOCUMENT

ANIMAL MANAGEMENT (PROTECTING PUPPIES) AND OTHER LEGISLATION AMENDMENT BILL 2016

The LGAQ provided comments to the Agriculture and Environment Committee on 9 March 2016.
Submission perspective: The LGAQ supports the Agriculture and Environment Committee in strategies that contribute to the protection and welfare of dogs kept in conditions that fail to meet hygiene and safety standards.

SUBMISSION DOCUMENT

REVIEW OF THE WATER CHARGES RULE

The LGAQ was pleased to provide a submission to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission on  4 March 2016. 
Submission perspective: The LGAQ supports the ACCC in changes as they would bring greater legitimacy to ACCC pricing principles but we don't believe that ACCC should have power to regulate water prices of non-Murray Darling water supplies operated by local governments or state governments.
