About us

Latrobe municipality is located in the north-west of Tasmania and shares a municipal boundary with Kentish Council, Devonport City Council, West Tamar Council and Meander Valley Council.

Kentish Council's landscape ranges from lush rural farmland to spectacular mountain scenery. Mount Roland watches over the town of Sheffield which has developed as the “Town of Murals”.

Kentish and Latrobe Councils value collaboration and partnerships both within and outside their municipal areas. As part of their business role models, the councils operate in a resource-sharing alliance.
