Council likely to reduce number of Councillors

 At a briefing this week we discussed a response for our representation review in line with the intended legislation that will limit the maximum number of Councillors to 12, including the mayor. We have so far discussed reducing to 11+1, 10+1 and 9 +1 arranged as a single electorate,  5 wards with 2 each, 4 wards with 3 or 4 each (or a combination) and 3 wards with 3 each. This matter will be consulted with the public and the results brought back to Council for determination. At  this point I'm favouring 3x3, but can see some benefit in the first option or second options as well.
