Under the NT Local Government Act 2008 local governments in the Northern Territory must review the adequacy of their electoral representation arrangements at least once during the term of a council. In the Central Desert Shire these arrangements were put in place by the Department of Local Government, following consultations with a Shire Transition Committee prior to the first shire elections in October 2008. This review was the first opportunity for elected members of the Central Desert Shire Council to review these arrangements. Council conducted an electoral representation review between August 2010 and February 2011.
Please see the attached reports for the full electoral review report.
