In 2019-2020, the Victoria Electoral Commission (VEC) conducted reviews of councils' electoral structures to ensure voters continue to be fairly represented. These are known as representation reviews.
By law, every council must be reviewed every 12 years.
In 2019, after community consultation, the VEC recommended that we change the number of wards from 7 to 9 single councillor wards. View the VEC's recommended structure.
