Council divisions

New boundaries for 2016 elections

As a result of the Douglas Shire de-amalgamation in January 2014, Cairns Regional Council's electoral divisions no longer meet the quota requirements set down in the Local Government Act 2009 (Act). The Act requires that each division contain a comparable share of electors.

The Local Government Change Commission (Electoral Commission of Queensland) has prepared nine new electoral boundaries for Cairns Regional Council for the 2016 Local Government elections. The new boundaries are based on total enrolment of 94,887 as at 23 February 2015, and contain between 9489 and 11597 enrolled electors in each of the proposed nine divisions.

Note: the existing 2012 boundaries remain in force until the local government elections on Saturday 19 March 2016.

Maps of the current Cairns Regional Council electoral boundaries (as per the 2012 election) are listed below.

You can also view boundaries at Council's online mapping service, Maps Online or at the Electoral Commission Queensland website.
