Core Services

Core services are at the heart of West Arnhem Regional Council’s business. Many of these services relate to the day-to-day, essential activities the Regional Council provides in our towns and communities, including road works, maintaining parks and gardens, and waste management.

In line with its policy of good governance and as part of the administration of its local government services, the Regional Council ensures it delivers on the goals and meets the performance objectives outlined in its annual Regional Plan and Budget.

Alongside its governance and executive leadership responsibilities, the Regional Council plays a leading role in supporting civic and community events, including Australia Day Awards, Anzac Day commemorations, and Australian Citizenship ceremonies.

Generally, core services are delivered across all communities, with a few exceptions, which are noted against the relevant activity listed below.
