Who we are
The Eastern Region Alliance (ERA) is a group of eastern metropolitan councils who voluntarily work together for the benefit of their local communities and the eastern region community as a whole.
An ERA Ageing Strategy was developed to cater for the changing needs of older people in the eastern region. The strategy was informed by a range of consultations and focus groups that were conducted with local residents, regional service providers and local community groups and associations.
A significant proportion of Council’s operating budget is spent on the maintenance and operations of Council parks and gardens, street scapes, footpaths, roads and drainage infrastructure. Council Depots manage this component of their operations utilising a combination of council employed field staff and contractors.
