TIRC is required by legislation (Local Government Act s23(2) and Local Government Electoral Regulations s63) to review electoral representation arrangements at least once during each Council term. The purpose of the Electoral Representation review is to assess whether the arrangements provide the most effective possible representation for residents in the Council’s area.
An assessment of electoral arrangements was conducted in 2020 and the Department of Local Government, Housing and Community Development has been notified that there are no changes to the electoral arrangements. Council will continue to work with the Department in all matters relating to reviews of constitutional arrangements. Council has been advised that it can conduct a further review of electoral boundaries and other constitutional arrangements after the next election in August 2021.
