Each year, Redland City Council produces an Annual Report. This is a legal requirement under the Local Government Act 2009, but we also appreciate the opportunity to provide a report to our community on our performance against our Corporate Plan and Operational Plan

Our latest Annual Report

For the first time, our Annual Report has adopted a ‘theme’ – staying connected – to reflect how Council, and the community, adapted to COVID-19 and  its impacts during 2019–2020. The cover photo shows one way in which Council connected with the community during COVID-19 – our library services’  “It’s Online Storytime”. This intiative proved popular, providing children and their parents with a way to enjoy early literacy programs at home while our Libraries were closed.  

In the spirit of reconciliation and respect throughout this report dual place names incorporating the Quandamooka People’s Jandai language are used.
