Mayor and Councillors

Councillors are the local government representatives, elected by you, to serve as the decision-making body for Cardinia Shire local government area. The municipality is divided into three wards: Ranges Ward, Port Ward and Central Ward.

Elections are being held on Saturday 22 October 2016 to elect nine councillors for a four-year term.

Councillor Code of Conduct

The Councillor Code of Conduct (Word, 137KB) identifies general matters that form the basis of understanding between Councillors; provides support and clarification to Councillors in carrying out their roles and responsibilities; acknowledges that the requirements applying to councils in the Local Government Act 1989 are paramount, but that general principles of good governance must also be observed; and defines the rules of conduct that apply to Councillors so that their behaviour and conduct is seen by the community as being of the highest standard.

Council is required to review the code within 12 months of an election. The current Council was elected in October 2012 and the Code of Conduct has been reviewed and updated.
