THE Victorian Electoral Commission is reviewing the electoral structure of Mornington Peninsula Shire and is seeking feedback from the community.
The municipality is being reviewed by an electoral representation advisory panel, supported by the VEC, who will consider the appropriate number of councillors and wards, ward boundary locations and ward names.
The panel will propose models for the council’s structure in a preliminary report, and the community will be able to give feedback.
The preliminary report has been released and response submissions for the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council review will open on Wednesday 25 October and close at 5pm on Wednesday 15 November.
The mayor Cr Steve Holland said the state government had committed to electoral structure boundary reviews.
“This community consultation and review is not run by the shire, however the outcome will significantly impact the electoral structure of the Mornington Peninsula, so I encourage our residents to share their feedback on the VEC website,” he said.
