By Ray White Whitsunday

The Change Commission is reviewing the internal boundaries (divisions) of the Whitsunday Regional Council. The purpose of this review is to ensure each division of the Council has a similar number of voters (quota), so that each person’s vote has the same value.

The Change Commission has prepared its proposal, which can be viewed below.

Division 1: Airlie Beach, Jubilee Pocket, Mandalay, Shute Harbour, the Whitsunday Islands & part of Cannonvale (Coral Esplanade, Altmann Avenue, Eshelby Drive, Jones Road, Woodwark Crescent & Macona Crescent).

Division 2: Woodwark, Cannon Valley & Cannonvale (excluding Coral Esplanade, Altmann Avenue, Eshelby Drive, Jones Road, Woodwark Crescent & Macona Crescent).

Division 4: Collinsville, Cape Upstart & the outskirts of Bowen.

Division 5: Strathdickie, Mount Marlow, Brandy Creek, Sugarloaf, Riordanvale, Myrtlevale, Gregory River, Hideaway Bay & Dingo Beach.
