Our Council

Our Council

The Central Desert Regional Council is made up of 12 members who are elected by the constituents from the four Wards that make up the Central Desert region. The council is charged with carrying out duties under the provisions of the Local Government Act and Regulations. It is a decision and policy making body with CDRC staff being the means by which these decisions and policies are carried into effect. A President and a Deputy President are elected by the members of the Council, with the role of Deputy President changing every 12 months.  

The current Council was inducted in September 2017. This is a unique Council in that each of our nine communities are represented by at least one councillor and all councillors are Indigenous. The ratio of new councillors to old is 7:5 with all but one of our new councillors having previously served on their Local Authorities.

On 26 August 2017 a general election was held across the Central Desert region. The following are the elected members for the Central Desert Regional Council's fourth term. Click this link CDRC Election Results 2017 to view more details of the election.
