Hepburn Shire Council electoral structure review

An electoral representation advisory panel is conducting a review of Hepburn Shire Council and you can have your say.

This is your chance to let the panel know your thoughts about your preferred electoral structure and how well your community is represented.

What is an electoral structure review?

The panel will look at the electoral structure of the local council. This includes if the council:

  • has an appropriate number of councillors
  • should be one large unsubdivided area or subdivided into wards.
