2016 -17 Legislative Council
Electoral Boundaries Redistribution

The Legislative Council Electoral Boundaries Act 1995 requires a review of Legislative Council division boundaries every 9 years with a view to maintaining a statistically balanced number of electors across all divisions.

Further Proposal

The Legislative Council Electoral Boundaries Redistribution Tribunal published its further proposal in Tasmania’s three daily newspapers on Saturday 1 April 2017. The newspapers contained a full-page colour map of Tasmania showing the current Legislative Council electoral boundaries and the proposed changes. Copies of the further proposal will be available at Service Tasmania shops from early in the week commencing 3 April.
