Elector Representation Review
An Elector Representation Review is held when a council considers an alteration to its electoral composition or ward structure. The aim of the review is to determind whether a change to a council's electoral composition or ward structure benefits the community.
Council is required to conduct a review of its representation periodically as determinded by the Minister for Local Government. (This is generally every eight years).
The City of Victor Harbor commenced its representation review in May 2016.
The representation review gives council and the community the opportunity to examine our present composition and structure, and allows the opportunity to plan and implement changes that will better reflect the future requirements of our community.
The first stage of the review is for Council to prepare a Representation Options Paper. Council will consult with the community on the paper, with feedback being incorporated in the draft ‘Representation Review Paper’. The community will then also be consulted on this draft Report, with feedback being considered by the Council in its final decision.
An Elected Member Workshop and Public Information Session has been scheduled for Monday 11 July 2016 at 5.30 in the Council Chamber. This session will discuss key issues, ascertain Elected Member views and issues and address questions from the community. View the agenda for this workshop.
