New electoral structure and ward boundaries
The City of Manningham is currently divided into three wards with three Councillors representing each ward. With the recent commencement of the Local Government Act 2020, the Minister for Local Government has determined a new electoral structure for the City of Manningham.
Manningham’s new electoral structure will be divided into nine wards with one Councillor representing each ward. Following consultation with the community, Manningham proposed new names for the nine new wards. The electoral structure and new ward names were gazetted by the Minister on 9 July 2020.
The new wards are: Bolin Ward, Currawong Ward, Manna Ward, Ruffey Ward, Schramm Ward, Tullamore Ward, Waldau Ward, Westerfolds Ward and Yarra Ward. Detailed maps of each ward are linked below.
This change will come into effect for the Council elections in October 2020.
