2022 Ward and Representation Review

In September 2022, the Minister for Local Government announced proposed changes to legislation that, if passed by Parliament, will result in:

  • The Office of Shire President being elected by the electors of the district, rather than Council;
  • Reduced Councillor numbers based on population
  • Introduction of optional preferential voting

At a Special Council Meeting held on 24 October 2022, Council resolved to change the method of electing the Shire President from the election by the council method to the election by the elector’s method as well as to undertake a ward representation review.

The first step of the ward representation review will be community consultation on the future of Shire’s ward structure and Councillor representation in the district.

A Discussion Paper has been prepared to assist with the Ward and Representation Review. The Discussion Paper is available via Your Say SJ, the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale’s online engagement hub. Your Say SJ is located at: https://www.yoursaysj.sjshire.wa.gov.au/
