Review of Wards and Representation

The Shire of Lake Grace is conducting a review of its wards and representation and invites public participation in the review.

Ward boundaries and the number of offices of Councillor for each ward will be reviewed against the following factors:

  • Physical and topographical features

  • Ratio of Councillors to electors in the various wards

A Discussion Paper will be available from Monday 16th January 2017 outlining the current situation and alternative structures. 

Public submissions are invited and must be submitted to the Shire of Lake Grace at:
