Best value

The Best Value Principles in section 208B of the Local Government Act 1989 stipulates that Council must:

  • develop quality and cost standards setting out performance outcomes in relation to the provision of community services
  • provide services that are responsive to community needs
  • provide services that are accessible to intended recipients of the service
  • adhere to continuous improvement in service provision
  • consult regularly with the community regarding its services
  • report regularly to its community on its Best Value achievements

Council's performance against these standards is reported in the Annual Report.
