Review of Council Wards

At the Ordinary Council Meeting on 24 November 2015, Council resolved to undertake a representation review, for implementation at the 2018 Local Government Elections.

As part of this review, Council will be required to consider:

  • The number of Council Members;
  • The division of the area into wards and/or whether the division of the area into wards should be abolished; and
  • Ward quotas, including into the future

The Council may also examine:

  • What structures will promote community cohesion;
  • Consideration of historically significant or Indigenous naming for wards; and
  • Consideration as to whether the Council will have a chairperson or a mayor

Council currently has 16 Council Members which include the Mayor and 15 Council Members with a six ward structure.
