Whittlesea City Council representation and subdivision review

We are holding a representation review of Whittlesea City Council and you can have a say.

This is your chance to let us know your thoughts about how well your community is represented.

What is a representation review?

Representation reviews look at the electoral structure of a local council. This includes:

  • if the council has the right number of councillors per voter
  • if the council should be one large area (unsubdivided) or made up of wards (subdivided)
  • if subdivided, how many wards, what ward boundaries and how many councillors each ward should have.
