The Victorian Electoral Commission (VEC) is reviewing the ward boundaries of Stonnington City Council and is seeking your input.

The review looks at adjustments to ward boundaries to ensure each voter is equitably represented in the upcoming local council elections. Ward boundaries are adjusted so that the number of voters represented by each councillor is within 10% of the local council average.

The review only considers adjustments to the location of ward boundaries. It will not consider the number of councillors or wards.

The VEC has produced a preliminary report which presents proposed changes to the boundary between North Ward and East Ward.

The report is available:

  • at vec.vic.gov.au
  • by calling 131 832 or
  • at council offices during business hours.

You are invited to take part in the review by making a submission to the VEC. Public input is a vital part of the review process, providing valuable local perspectives and knowledge. Submissions must be with the VEC by Wednesday 18 March.
