Local council representation and subdivision review reports

Under the Local Government Act 1989, we were responsible for conducting electoral representation reviews of all local councils in Victoria. We completed 31 representation reviews and 7 subdivision reviews in the 2019-20 program. This report summarises our process and the outcomes of those reviews.

Local council public notices

We are required to publish election notices in local newspapers at several points in a local council election or by-election. We began to publish these notices on our website from the 2020 local council election.
