It's an exciting time to be part of local government and this is a great opportunity to see your community progress from your dedication. A democracy only succeeds if people who care for the community are prepared to give it a go, do their bit and have a say.

Successful local election candidates are those that take the time to listen to their community, engage with people and go on to champion their voice as their representatives.


​​Nomination for the by-election open on Friday 24 November 2017 and close at noon on Friday 22 December 2017. Nomination papers will be available at the start of the nomination period.
