Shift­ing the bound­aries

Canning Gazette - - NEWS -

SEV­ERAL sub­urbs are likely to change elec­torates at the next State Elec­tion.

Three in­de­pen­dent com­mis­sion­ers have been re­view­ing WA elec­toral bound­aries ahead of the March 2021 elec­tion.

They have pro­posed sub­stan­tial changes, with only 10 of WA’S 59 dis­tricts to re­main un­changed, and have in­vited pub­lic sub­mis­sions un­til Au­gust 26.

To boost num­bers in River­ton, the com­mis­sion­ers pro­posed to trans­fer part of Leem­ing east of Karel Av­enue from the Jan­dakot dis­trict as well as a small part of the River­ton lo­cal­ity cur­rently in the dis­trict of Can­ning­ton.

The re­duc­tion in elec­tor num­bers in Can­ning­ton would be bal­anced by trans­fer­ring part of Wil­son south of Leach High­way from Vic­to­ria Park, where elec­tor num­bers could be bal­anced through a small ad­just­ment to its boundary with South Perth in the Kens­ing­ton area.

No changes are pro­posed for the dis­tricts of Ar­madale, Belmont, For­rest­field or Thorn­lie.

The fi­nal bound­aries are due to be pub­lished in Novem­ber. Visit www.bound­aries. wa.gov.au.
