It also marks the first year of reporting on actions of the 2021-25 Council Plan and Community Vision, which were developed following extensive community engagement in 2021. Throughout the year, council continued to deliver over 100 services to the community, despite the ongoing challenges of a global crisis, coupled with the ongoing recovery from the June 2021 storm and flood event.

"The Annual Report covers all aspects of council operations and reflects on how our work connects communities across Latrobe City. Our achievements are also the community's achievements, and throughout the year we have celebrated some significant projects together from sporting club and community facility upgrades to the opening of the Gippsland Performing Arts Centre."

"Council also adopted Living Well Latrobe, Latrobe City Council's Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan (MPHWP) 2021-2025. Living Well Latrobe is a four-year plan that describes how the council will work with the community and our partners to maintain and improve health and well-being."
