About Livingstone Shire

Yeppoon lagoon

The Livingstone Shire Council was created in 2013, when the Livingstone community voted for de-amalgamation from the Rockhampton Regional Council. The Livingstone Shire sits nestled along the beautiful Capricorn Coast and covers approximately 11,776 square kilometres, with a population of almost 36,000 residents.

Council’s strategic direction is determined by the Mayor and Councillors who are elected by the community.  The Mayor and each Councillor are responsible for different portfolios in the region, making executive decisions in consultation with the community.

Council is focussed on continual improvements in overall service delivery at an operational level to provide ratepayers with the best possible value for money as well as the implementation of long-term plans to reinvigorate the Shires’ economy and reinforce business confidence.

Our Executive Management Team provides advice and support to the Mayor and Councillors and is responsible for the day to day management of the Council as an organisation.

Livingstone Shire Council promotes a positive culture in the workplace with all staff demonstrating high standards of Accountability, Teamwork, Community, Potential and Positivity. These values and behaviours set the standard for Council and are embodied throughout the organisation.
