Advice has been received from the NSW Electoral Commission that the Minister for
Local Government has postponed the September 2020 Local Government elections for
a full year following amendment of the Local Government Act 1993.

What this means for Tenterfield Shire Council:

  • Local Government elections will now be held in September 2021;
  • The current Council will remain in place to September 2021;
  • The subsequent Local Government election will still proceed in September 2024.

Tenterfield Councillors currently elect the Mayor for a 2 year period. As Mayor Peter
Petty was elected in 2018, a further Mayoral Election is required to be held in
September 2020 to elect the Mayor for the period until 2021. The election for Deputy
Mayor will also be held at this time.
