Congratulations Awards for Excellence Winners!

The annual Local Government Awards for Excellence, sponsored by MAV Insurance, aim to promote outstanding achievement and inspire leading management practice and continuous improvement among Tasmanian councils.  The awards are presented for initiatives that have, or are delivering positive benefits for Tasmanian communities.

Congratulations to Break O’Day Council for winning the 2019 Local Government Award for Excellence (Smaller Councils, Population less than 15,000) with their entry: One Night Stand.

In 2018 Break O Day Council delivered Tasmania’s first Triple J One Night Stand just 12 weeks after St Helens was announced as the wining location. While Council were advised to expect about 6000 people to attend, on the day the St Helens One Night Stand attracted around 30,000 making it the biggest triple J One Night Stand in history.

Congratulations to Central Coast Council for winning the 2019 Local Government Award for Excellence (Larger Councils, Population more than 15,000) with their entry: Dementia Friendly Central Coast

Central Coast Council made history with its “Dementia-Friendly Central Coast Framework”, the first of its kind to be adopted by a Tasmanian council. The Framework provides a roadmap to achieve the vision of creating a dementia friendly Central Coast. The Framework also provides a practical toolkit of initiatives, based on global case studies, to meet local priorities.
