Shifting the boundaries
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.
