Our Councillors

Residents of each of West Arnhem Regional Council’s four wards elect three representative councillors at general elections. At the first available meeting of Council following a general election, the councillors appoint a Mayor and Deputy Mayor. These elected representatives sit as the West Arnhem Regional Council on a monthly basis at the head office in Jabiru.

Twelve councillors were elected at the most recent local government general elections held in 2012.

Vacancies are filled as necessary through by-elections as listed on the Northern Territory Electoral Commission website.
