We strive to keep you informed on what we are doing. We appreciate that not everyone reads a newspaper or listens to the radio so in addition to our news releases, we publish a number of publications, use social media and issue E-Updates to help keep you up to date and learn about what projects, initiatives and schemes we are involved in.
We produce a number of high profile publications to help keep you informed and up to date on our services and activities and what projects, initiatives and schemes we are involved in throughout the District. These include:
