Every election year Council produces a Pre-election Report. Primarily aimed at those who are considering standing for election, the report includes a seven-year snapshot of Council operations and finances: looking back three years, the current year, and looking forward three years. The report will help those considering standing to make an informed choice. It may also be of benefit to voters as they consider who should represent them for the next three years.
