We've experienced our fair share of storm events over recent months, with the most recent in late December bringing down trees and littering roads with debris.
During a two week period from December 27,
our teams responded to 1,046 cases, compared to 304 during the same period in 2015/16.
This included nine times more cases relating to stormwater and trees, and five times more cases relating to roads and footpaths.
We thank you all for your patience while we have responded to the storm events.

We have now prepared a Representation Review Report that provides details of the first public consultation on the various representation options.

A day in the Hills well worth the revolutions!
The Santos Tour Down Under saw legions of cycling fans and lycra-clad cycling enthusiasts make their way to the Adelaide Hills for the Staging Connections Stage 2.
Starting in Stirling with five thrilling laps, the peloton chased down the breakaway on their way to sunny Paracombe for a hill climb finish.
It was fantastic to
see so many people along the route, cheering on the professionals!
