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 local government general elections held in 2012.

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

The 2017 Local Government General Election will be held on Saturday, August 26. If you are interested in becoming a councillor, candidate packs are available at all West Arnhem Regional Council offices. You can also update your enrolment details by calling into your local council office. Or for more information visit the Northern Territory Electoral Commission website.
