Northern Grampians Shire Council Electoral Representation Review
The Victorian Electoral Commission (VEC) has released the final report for the Northern Grampians Shire Council Electoral Representation Review. The report can be read here(PDF, 2MB).
The final report details the VEC's recommendation to the Minister for Local Government that Northern Grampians Shire Council continues to consist of seven councillors elected from four wards with adjustments to the current ward boundaries.
By law, every Victorian council must have its electoral structure reviewed approximately every 12 years to ensure it provides fair and equitable representation for all voters.
This review is called an electoral representation review and considers:
whether the local council has the appropriate number of councillors
whether the local council should be subdivided into wards or be unsubdivided and
if subdivided, the number of wards, ward boundaries and the number of councillors per ward.
The VEC will release its final report on Wednesday 25 March which can be read here.
