New Ward Structure for Council Elections 2020

At the start of May, the Minister for Local Government announced that Greater Dandenong would have its electoral structure changed back to single member wards for the 2020 local government elections.
 
The new ward boundaries were informed by recent work undertaken by the Victorian Electoral Commission and ensure that each councillor represents roughly the same number of voters.
 
Council suggested to the Minister for Local Government that the 11 wards be named after the areas they predominantly represent and the Minister has now accepted these names.  An Order in Council which applies the new ward boundaries and names was made by the Governor in Council and published in the Victoria Government Gazette on 9 July 2020.
