To Dwell in Unity

The year 2021 marks the 150th anniversary of the first roads boards and municipalities, an important step in the creation of a comprehensive system of local government for Western Australia. The post-war period has seen the continued expansion of local government’s role and the cementing of its place in developing the community. There have been many attempts at reforming local government, and that is an important part of the story, as are some of the personal stories of the characters and scoundrels who have been part of the remarkable story of local government in WA.

Dr Berry has worked in the local government sector since the 1980s and is currently working with the WA Local Government Grants Commission on road funding.
