Know Your Council - Local Government Performance Reporting

The framework is made up of 66 measures and a governance and management checklist of 24 items which together build a comprehensive picture of council performance, details of which can be found on the Know Your Council website . The groupings that councils can be compared in can be found on the website.

Know Your Council and the LGPRF have been developed by Local Government Victoria (LGV) within the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP). Mandatory performance reporting became a requirement for local government from the 2014-15 local government annual budgeting and reporting cycle onwards.

When reviewing and analysing the full data set, it is important to acknowledge that:

  • the data in this data set may change as councils occasionally need to update their performance data ahead of their next Annual Report

  • the "Council Says" commentary provided alongside the data should always be considered with any analysis or reporting of a council's data

  • variables in the data may not allow for accurate comparisons.

As such, in downloading this data, you have agreed not to use the council performance data set to aid in the publication of overly simplistic league tables of councils.
