Smart Hub

Smart Hub is a communication portal that enables local governments, regional councils and the department to engage, using a secure and centralised online environment.

Smart Hub is a tool used for:

  • capacity building, especially for smaller remote local governments
  • regulation and monitoring
  • a source of data for the MyCouncil website.

Available only to local government employees, Smart Hub requires a unique login which provides access to your local government's home page.

Benefits of Smart Hub

The benefits of Smart Hub to local governments include:

A convenient single portal

Local governments can communicate with the department without having to retain a range of separate email addresses as used previously.

Lodge data online

Local governments no longer need to email or mail hard copy documents to the department and/or the Minister (and the department needs to manually enter less data on behalf of local governments).

More efficient data collection

Minimal duplication of data collection previously sought by different parts of the department.

Increased efficiency

Online applications mean local governments can seek extensions/approvals faster and the department can respond faster with a decision.

Using Smart Hub

The following documents and reports can be lodged via Smart Hub:

  • Compliance Audit Review
  • Annual Financial Statements
  • Western Australian Grants Commission returns
  • Requests for extensions of time
