There are numerous options available for a Ward review. These might involve the number and naming of wards, the levels of Council representation in each, or the existence of wards at all.
Recognising the multiple configurations of ward boundaries possible, at the general level some options available to the Council include:
1. Maintaining the status quo - pending population increases triggered by upcoming development in the City
2. Adjusting the boundary between Beaconsfield and Hilton Wards – to address the Local Government Advisory Board’s preferred deviation percentage.
3. Undertaking a comprehensive review and reconfiguration of all boundaries. This might include ward names and representation levels.
These options are not the only possible alternatives but rather examples designed to provoke thought about possibilities that may better suit the future requirements of the City of Fremantle community. The naming of wards may also be considered during this review.
You are welcome to make an open submission using the online form.
