Councils are part of the democratic framework of Australia. The community elects their Council Members every four years and the next general election happens in 2022. Council elections are the biggest single voluntary civic participation activity in the State.


The Council area is divided into four wards, with three Councillors representing each ward. Ward boundaries are reviewed periodically or when the number of electors per ward varies by more than 20% from other wards.
