External boundary & electoral arrangement reviews

The Change Commission is responsible for assessing whether proposed changes to external boundaries or electoral arrangements are in the public interest.

There's no legislated date for this type of review to be referred to, or considered by the Change Commission. The timing of these reviews is subject to a range of factors such as the complexity of the proposal and public consultation requirements.

Please note: the Change Commission is legally required to address enrolment quotas in divided councils in the year before the Local Government Quadrennial Elections. Hence divisional boundary reviews must be prioritised in 2019.
