Banyule City Council representation reviews

We are holding a representation review of Banyule City Council and you can have your 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 (subdvidided)
  • if subdivided, how many wards, what ward boundaries and how many councillors each ward should have.

You can tell us your views in writing or draw a map of how you think the council should be made up. This is known as a submission, and can be done using our submission tool:

This round (preliminary submissions) closes at 5.00 pm on Wednesday 24 July 2019.
