Council’s organisational performance reports are our key point of accountability to the Community. We undertake and share these reports to:
- ensure clarity and transparency with the community
- evaluate the efficiency and effectiveness of our services
- track the progress of our projects and other activities
- monitor our financial health
- showcase our achievements
- meet legislative requirements
- remain agile and make necessary changes swiftly
- enable evidence-based decision making in the planning cycle
- reflect on the progress of long-term outcomes set by the community
Council is guided in its organisational planning and reporting by the Integrated Planning and Reporting (IP&R) Framework, as prescribed by the Office of Local Government. For more information visit our Integrated Planning and Reporting page.
The Annual Report provides a comprehensive account of Council's achievements and performance over 12 months, against the services and activities set out in the Delivery Program and Operational Plan, as well as statutory information prescribed by the Local Government (General) Regulation 2005.
While reporting is a statutory requirement, we strive to report clearly and transparently above and beyond the requirements, as we want to provide our community with a full picture of all our activities, achievements, challenges, income and expenditure.
Council was awarded a Gold Award by the ARA for our 2021-22 Annual Report. This is the eighth consecutive year our Annual Report has been awarded a Gold Award for reporting excellence.
