Electoral Commission of Queensland

Local Boundary Reviews

Local government reviews occur every four years according to legislated time frames, or in response to a referral from the Minister for Local Government. The outcome of a review may include the adjustment of divisional (internal) or external boundaries, or changes to a council's electoral arrangements.

For more information, see the Local Government Change Commission.

Divisional Boundary Reviews

The last divisional boundary reviews took place in 2015. See the Review of Divided Councils Reports.

The purpose of these reviews is to ensure each division or ward contains a similar number of voters.

External Boundary or Electoral Arrangements Reviews

The Change Commission also assesses proposed changes to the external boundaries or electoral arrangements of local governments.

See the External Boundary Change Reports for its findings.
