Becoming a Councillor

Local Government Councillors are elected by people who live and do business in the local Council area and / or own property within the local government and have registered to vote.

Councillors play an important community leadership role and create policies and resolve decisions that the Council makes about what happens locally.

Local government elections are held on the third Saturday of October, every two years.
