To support appropriate staggering of terms as we transition from the current Council size to new requirements under the Professional Governance Act, term lengths for the five elected Councillors elected are determined by the number of votes received. These term lengths will be adjusted once the new legislation comes into force. Learn more about transitional requirements.
The online ballot was conducted using systems contracted from Simply Voting Inc., which operates under high-security, TLS 1.2, 256-bit encryption with anti-fraud controls and secure login for eligible voters.
