Reporting is one of the key points of accountability and transparency between the Council and our community. Under the Integrated Planning and Reporting Framework, Council has a statutory obligation to provide information on the deliverables throughout the Council term.
The main focus of the Annual Report is to provide information about Council's progress in implementing the Delivery Program and Operational Plan.
In the year of the ordinary election, the Annual Report must also include an outline of the achievements in implementing the Community Strategic Plan, this is known as the End of Term Report.
Note: The Annual Report must be written within 5 months of the end of each Financial Year (by 30 November) and submitted to the Office of Local Government.
The focus of a progress report is to provide information on the actions planned within the 12 month operational period, as well as provide Quarterly Budget Review Statements and Works Program Reviews.
