Pre-election reports

The pre-election report is prepared by our chief executive, and under legislation must be politically independent. The report is a requirement for all councils under the Local Government Act.

The purpose of a pre-election report, as defined under the Act is to provide information about the issues the council faces. This promotes public discussion ahead of the council elections, to help voters and elected members make informed choices.
