Have your say on Yarra Ranges Shire Council subdivision review

Published on 19 February 2020


The Victorian Electoral Commission (VEC) is reviewing the ward boundaries of Yarra Ranges Shire Council and is seeking your input.

Ward boundaries are adjusted so that the number of voters represented by each councillor is within 10% of the local council average.

The review only considers adjustments to the location of ward boundaries. It will not consider the number of councillors or wards.

The VEC proposes adjustments to the boundaries of the following wards within Yarra Ranges Shire Council:

  • Billanook Ward
  • Chandler Ward
  • Chirnside Ward
  • Lyster Ward
  • Ryrie Ward
  • Streeton Ward

A horizontal map with inserts showing proposed boundary changes for Yarra Ranges Council's Wards. For an accessible version of the map, contact the VEC on 131 832.

The report is available:

  • at vec.vic.gov.au
  • by calling 131 832 or
  • at council offices during business hours.

The VEC is encouraging all individuals and groups in Yarra Ranges Shire Council to have their say.

You can take part in the review by making a submission to the VEC on the proposed ward boundaries. Public input is a vital part of the review process, providing valuable local perspectives and knowledge. 

Submissions must reach the VEC by 5.00 pm on Wednesday 18 March 2020.
