The Local Government complex stands on beautifully landscaped gently sloping ground.

A two storey wing contains the new council chamber, mayor’s office, council facilities, function and meeting spaces. A three storey wing, houses the new council offices. Between them is the high central atrium foyer which can on occasions be used for large gatherings, art shows and exhibitions.

A ramp leads up from the lower entry to a freestanding elevator and an open stair which gives access to all departmental offices.
A suspended bridge across the entry space connects the council chamber and its ancillary public spaces with executive offices.
