Victorian Electoral Commission(VEC) Report for Greater Dandenong City Council Representation Review

09 October 2019

The Victorian Electoral Commission (VEC) has published its final report following an electoral representation review of Greater Dandenong City Council.

The report puts forward a recommended electoral structure for the local council. The VEC recommends Greater Dandenong City Council retains its current electoral structure with adjustments to the current ward boundaries (11 councillors elected from three three-councillor wards and one two-councillor ward).

As well as detailing the recommendation, the report summarises the review process, matters raised through submissions and at the public hearing, and other findings that informed the VEC during the review.

The Minister for Local Government, the Hon. Adem Somyurek MLC, will decide whether to accept the recommendation. Any changes to the electoral structure will take effect at the next local council general election in October 2020.
