In November 2015 Council commenced a Representation Review as required by the Electoral Commission SA. The Review was required because the number of electors represented by a Councillor within existing ward boundaries had become uneven. The Representation Review Draft Options Paper was endorsed by Council and the community had the opportunity to provide feedback through two public consultation periods in May 2016 and December 2016.
The City of Playford is divided into five wards, with a Mayor and 15 Councillors. Each ward is represented by three Councillors.
The ward boundaries endeavour to provide an equal number of electors represented by a Councillor.
