Public Consultation


Review of Elector Representation

Notice is hereby given that the Berri Barmera Council has undertaken a review to determine whether a change of arrangements in respect to elector representation will result in the electors of the area being more adequately and fairly represented.


As an outcome of this review Council proposes the following:

1. The principal member of Council continue to be a Mayor elected by the community.

2. The existing “no wards” structure be retained.

3. The future elected body of Council continue to comprise eight (8) area councillors.


Council has prepared a report which details the review process, public consultation undertaken and the proposal Council now considers should be carried into effect. A copy of this report is available here or at the:

  • Berri Barmera Council office
  • Barmera Library and Customer Service Centre
  • Berri Library and Visitor Information Centre
