Minister's Message

The NSW Government is committed to showcasing the great work of NSW’s 128 local councils.

Your Council allows ratepayers across the State to find out more about their local council and the wide range of services it delivers at the click of a button.

It also celebrates the sheer size and scale of our councils as a whole with a Statewide snapshot of the NSW local government sector.

Residents can also access comprehensive statistics on the operations of their local council and the profile of their local community.

The user friendly and easy to understand website boasts detailed information about council expenditure and community facilities.

Importantly, the data for each council is also bench-marked against the average for like councils so ratepayers can compare how their council is travelling.

This one-stop-shop for local government is a valuable resource for residents, ratepayers and the general community, as well as councillors, council staff, local government peak bodies, researchers, academics and State Government agencies.

The Hon. Shelley Hancock MP
Minister for Local Government

From the Deputy Secretary

The Your Council website provides a comprehensive snapshot of how well local government is performing in NSW.

Launched in 2019, the interactive website is part of the Office of Local Government’s ongoing commitment to improve the quality of information that is available to the community on council performance.

The website highlights trends, achievements and key statistics, and allows ratepayers to access a comprehensive annual report card on NSW councils.

These key performance measures help councils to actively manage and improve their organisation’s performance and provide the community with more meaningful information on the drivers behind their performance.

OLG will continue to work with the NSW local government sector to strengthen the performance, sustainability, transparency and accountability of local councils across the State.

The website is updated annually as new performance measurement data becomes available.

The current website includes the latest data from the 2018-19 financial year.

OLG will continue to build on the information and functionality of the website to enhance local government reporting even further.
