Fewer elected members at the 2022 election!
Pending legislation will require there to be 12 or less elected members to sit on any council. As Unley currently has 13 members there will need to be change. The role of Mayor will continue as an elected at large position which leaves space for 11 or less councillors. We as councillors will make a recommendation to be consulted with residents later in the year. Current theory on boards is that they work best with 7-9 members. So decisions will need to be made about reducing the number of wards, the number of people needed in each ward or if we need wards at all. Suggestions range from 5 wards with 2 members each to 3 wards with 3 members each.
