Stage 2 Consultation – Closes 25/06/2021 (extended from 11/06/2021)
Yorke Peninsula Council is undertaking a review to determine whether a change of arrangements in respect to elector representation will result in the electors of the area being more adequately and fairly represented.
As an outcome of this review Council proposes the following:
- The principal member of Council continue to be a Mayor, duly elected by the community at council-wide elections.
- The Council area continue to be divided into three wards with the existing ward names of Kalkabury, Gum Flat and Innes/Penton Vale being retained.
- The Council continue to comprise eleven (11) ward councillors in addition to the Mayor.
- The proposed Kalkabury and Innes/Penton Vale Wards each be represented by four (4) ward councillors and the proposed Gum Flat Ward be represented by three (3) ward councillors.
- No area councillors are required in addition to ward councillors.
Council has prepared an Elector Representation Review – Representation Review Report which details the review process, the public consultation undertaken and the proposal Council considers should be carried into effect. A copy of this report is available for viewing and/or purchase at any of the Council’s offices or via download from www.yorke.sa.gov.au.
