We need to talk

Check out the issues we’re currently seeking feedback on and tell us what you think.

What are Community Outcomes?

Community outcomes are clear aspirations or goals that the Council believes help to provide leadership and guidance in meeting its statutory purpose and role.

The Council developed its Community Outcomes, as detailed below, to provide this clear expression of its aspirations and goals for now and the future. In developing its Community Outcomes, the Council considered:

  • What are our goals as a Council?
  • How do we want to be in the future?
  • What do we want to do for our community?

The Council believes that the Community Outcomes provide the Council and its community with positive ways to stimulate thinking about needs and priorities for today and the future when making decisions.

The Community Outcomes are now the adopted goals and aspirations that the Council aims to achieve in all aspects of its leadership, policy development and service delivery and to promote the interests of the community – now and in the future.

Reporting on Community Outcomes

In order to track its progress towards achieving the Community Outcomes, the Council will report on its performance annually by producing an Annual Report. For each service level outlined in the Long Term Plan, the Council will detail what projects and services have been completed or progressed, and how those have contributed to the achievement of Community Outcomes. The Annual Report must be adopted by 31 October each year and will be made available to the public in early November each year.
