Annual Report 2022-2023

Council has a statutory requirement to produce an Annual Report each financial year. The Local Government Act 2020 outlines the key information that must be included and the process that must be adhered to in the development, authorisation and publication of the Annual Report.

The 2022-2023 Annual Report is a key corporate document of Council. It contains Council’s Financial Statements, Performance Statement and the achievements delivered under the Council Plan during the financial year - 1 July 2022 to the 30 June 2023.

The annual report is focused on highlights and is primarily used by a range of government, community based and private sector organisations.
