Download it here, or using the "download" link on the right side of this page. We’ve prepared it as an easy reference document to provide relevant information about topical issues. We encourage you to discuss these things with other people who have an interest in our community. We’ve provided an overview of the Thames-Coromandel District, our challenges and opportunities; and our planned future direction and focus areas. A set of financial statements cover the three years before and after the elections and the year of the elections. A summary of the major projects that are underway or are planned over the next three years provides some context to the financial statements. All councils must prepare a pre-election report and include information set out in the Local Government Act 2002. The report is prepared independent of elected members and is not a political document.
