Essential Element 1.1 of the Local Government Act 1993 requires that a report be prepared every four years to inform an incoming council of the operations of the Local Government Area for the previous four years.

The Report for 2012-2017 has been tabled at Council's Ordinary Meeting on 2 August 2017 and will become an adopted attachment to the Annual Report 2016-2017 in November 2017.
