Bunbury City Council Chambers

Both the WA State Parliament and the City of Bunbury recognise the need for elected members (being the City’s Mayor and Councillors) to undertake continual professional development in fulfilling their role of public office.

It is imperative that elected members have appropriate skills to perform their role as local government is complex and makes significant decisions that affect the organisation’s sustainability and overall community outcomes.

The Local Government Act 1995 requires West Australian local governments to prepare a report for each financial year on the training completed by elected members in that financial year and to publish the report on the local government’s website.

The reports detailed below highlight the training that was undertaken by elected members.
