Pre-election reports

The purpose of the pre-election report is to provide information about the issues we face.

What is a pre-election report?

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

In providing information about the issues we face, the report promotes public discussion ahead of the council elections, to help voters and elected members make informed decisions.
