Ward Boundaries 2015 Review
The Local Government Act 1993 requires Councils to keep Ward boundaries under continuous review.
The Act requires that each Council must undertake procedures to alter the ward boundaries where the number of electors differs by more than 10% from the number of electors in each other ward in the area.
In 2015, statistics received from the NSW Electoral Commission indicated that North Sydney Council's Ward Boundaries differed by more than 10% and thus a review was required. A referendum at the 2012 Council elections also reduced the number of Wards from 4 to 3 and the number of Councillors representing each Ward from 4 to 3 (not including the Mayor). This reduction in Wards necessitated a review of the Ward names.
