On 17 May 2018 Parliament passed the Local Government (Councillor Complaints) and Other Legislation Amendment Act 2018.

These amendments will provide a simpler, more streamlined system for making, investigating and determining complaints about councillor conduct in Queensland.

The changes will require Local Governments to implement new procedures for dealing with councillor conduct complaints and mandatory Code of Conduct training for councillors in the coming months.
