Abstract: In its 'Better, Stronger Local Government', the Independent Local Government Review Panel (2012a, 2012b) advanced several claims regarding the performance of New South Wales (NSW) local government, including the supposed need for additional "sub-council" governance structures. This article argues that there is no need to "reinvent the wheel" in NSW local government by introducing additional "sub-council" structures since existing regulation already enables local authorities to engage in local co-governance. Using the example of the Lake Macquarie City Council ("LakeMac") "delegation model", the article shows that LakeMac has been successful in its endeavors to engage widespread community participation in co-governance to manage council facilities.
