Councillor Development Program
Being a Councillor requires a thorough understanding of the local area and Council's role in delivering services to the community.
The Councillor Development program provides prospective and current Councillors — and our community — with an insight into the role of local government and Councillors.
The program is divided into 5 parts and is based on the themes of our Community Strategic Plan. Explore the links below to find out more.
