The Victorian Electoral Commission (VEC) is reviewing the structure of wards and number of councillors in Bayside City Council to ensure fair and equitable representation for all voters.

Proposed options

Two options are being proposed following preliminary submissions from the local community and the VEC’s own research:

  • Option A: seven councillors elected from three wards with adjustments to the current ward boundaries (one three-councillor ward and two two-councillor wards)
  • Option B: seven councillors elected from three wards, retaining the current electoral structure and ward boundaries (one three-councillor ward and two two-councillor wards).
