Bayside City Council representation reviews

We completed a representation review of Bayside City Council on Wednesday 9 October 2019.

Our recommendation is that Bayside City Council retains its current electoral structure with adjustments to the current ward boundaries (seven councillors elected from one three-councillor ward and two two-councillor wards).

We provided this recommendation to the Minister for Local Government. The Minister will decide whether to accept our recommendation. Any changes will apply at the next general council election in October 2020.

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.
