Local Government Report Writing

Report writing skills are important for anyone wanting a successful career in Local Government. Better decisions can be made more promptly when reports are of a high standard.

There is a clear link between the planning that goes into a Council report and the ease of implementation of the resulting Council resolution. Good reports contribute to higher trust between Councillors, the community and staff.
