Pre-Election Report

A Pre-Election Report was prepared to inform the regional community and to promote public discussion about any financial issues facing the Council. It brings together information previously published in other Council documents – including its 2018/2028 Long-Term Plan, annual plans and annual reports.

The report provides historic information for the past three financial years (2016/2017 to 2018/2019), an overview of the current election year (2019/2020) and the Council’s planned performance and financial position for the next three years (2020/2021-2022/2023). It also provides information on the works programme and major projects the Council expects to deliver over the next three years.

As required by law, the Pre-Election Report is prepared by the Council’s Chief Executive and not the current elected Council members.
