Ward Boundaries 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. The 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.
Following consultation with the community the Council adopted a revised three Wards boundaries and names in 2015: Ward Boundaries (285KB)
The revised Wards were created in preparation for the Local Government Election on 8 September 2015. However, due to the State Government’s amalgamation process, the election for North Sydney Council was postponed until 9 Sep 2017.
The referendum at the 2017 Council elections removed the process of popularly electing the Mayor.
There are now two Wards in place for the election of 4 December 2021.
Voters chose five councillors for each of the two wards (Cammerayal Ward and St Leonards Ward) for a total of ten councillors.
The elected councillors then decide upon who from their number fulfills Mayor and Deputy Mayor roles.
