Review of Ward Boundaries

The City of South Perth is undertaking a review of its ward system to comply with the requirements of the Local Government Act 1995 and a discussion paper has been prepared to assist informing the community of the review.

The Review of Ward Boundaries and Representation Discussion Paper was endorsed to go out for public comment by Council at its September 2018 meeting. Thanks to everyone who provided feedback.

At their November meeting, Council resolved to recommend the following changes to the Local Government Advisory Board (the Board):

  • Mill Point Ward to be reduced in size and have its boundary re-align along Hensman Street between Coode Street, Labouchere Road and South Terrace;
  • Manning Ward to be increased in size to have its boundary re-align to include the area south of Gentilli Way, extending from Mount Henry Road to the foreshore east of the Kwinana Freeway. Additionally, it is proposed that the ward will exclude the area bounded by Jackson Road and Henley Street;
  • Moresby Ward to be increased in size to include the area formerly within the Manning Ward bounded by Jackson Road and Henley Street; and
  • Como Ward to be reduced in size and have its boundary extended to include the area formerly within Mill Point bounded by Coode Street, Labouchere Road and South Terrace. Additionally, it is proposed that the ward will exclude the area bounded by the foreshore, Gentilli Way and Mount Henry and Edgewater Roads.

The minutes and attachments are available in the Document Library.

Next step

The Board has been informed of Council's decision and will make a recommendation to the Minister for Local Government; Heritage; Culture and the Arts, who will then make a final decision about the proposed changes. Any changes approved by the Minister will be in place where possible for the next ordinary local government election in October 2019.
