Reporting on our progress

Council routinely reports back to the community on its progress against its Operational Plan, Delivery Program, and Community Strategic Plan outcomes. Financial performance against annual and long-term budgets is also reported yearly.

To ensure accountability to the community, all of Council’s reporting is compliant with NSW Government legislation and the Office of Local Government’s Integrated Planning and Reporting (IP&R) framework.

Biannual progress reports

Council compiles biannual progress reports to provide a snapshot on progress made against the adopted Operational Plan and Delivery Program. It also identifies areas that require Council’s attention.
