Leadership Model Referendums

The government wants to offer local communities the opportunity to make a choice about the way in which they are governed.

The local authority must operate either:

  • A mayor and cabinet executive
  • A leader and cabinet executive
  • A committee system

We currently operate under a leader and cabinet model.

If the local community decide they would prefer to have a different form of governance they can petition the Council. If more than 5% of the Council's registered electorate petition us, a referendum would be held. 


The number that will be used for the purposes of determining the validity of petitions is 2544.  The official notice can be viewed here
