Project Information and Background

The Representation Review (the 'Review') process requires each Council to undertake a review of all aspects of its composition and the division (or potential division) of the Council area into wards. The Review must be completed in accordance with the requirements of Section 12 of the Act to ensure fair and equitable representation of all City of Adelaide electors.

What does this Review include?

The principal member of Council:

  • whether it should be a Lord Mayor elected by the community, or
  • a Lord Mayor selected by (and from amongst) the elected members;

The composition of Council, including:

  • the number of elected members required to provide fair and adequate representation to the community;
  • the division of the Council area into wards or the abolition of wards;
  • is there a need or benefit for area councillors in addition to ward councillors (where the Council area is to be divided into wards);
  • if wards are to be retained, is there a need to change ward boundaries, the level of ward representation within, and the names of, any future proposed wards.

Stage 1 of the Review was the preparation of a 'Representation Options Paper', which examined whether Council’s current structure provides the most beneficial structure for representation of its community, and whether those communities would benefit from changes to the composition, size or Ward structure of the Council.

Consultation on stage 1 closed 4 May 2021. For more information on Stage 1, please Click here

    The City of Adelaide has begun public consultation on its latest Representation Review. The first stage of consultation seeks your feedback on the Representation Options Paper. We would like your thoughts on three key issues that form the basis for public consultation on our Representation Options Paper:

    1. What is important to you about the number of elected members? (please share your thoughts and ideas about the number of elected members to provide fair and adequate representation) 
    2. What is important to you about the Principal member of Council? (please share your thoughts whether the Lord Mayor should be elected by Councillors or directly by the community)
    3. What is important to you about Wards? 

    This forum provides you an opportunity to provide council with feedback and also to interact with other community members in threaded conversations. Please note that this forum is supported by 24/7 moderation.
