Council has implemented strict protocols to ensure we comply with directions issued by government in relation to managing the COVID 19 risk. These protocols apply to our staff, our customers and visitors to our premises, and councillors alike. Please be understanding that we will do our best to maintain services and help in what are unique and challenging circumstances.
If you are not a resident, you may be entitled to vote if you own, occupy or lease property in the Tenterfield Shire Council Local Government Area (LGA) as a corporation, business or individual. You will have to be registered on Tenterfield Shire Council’s non-residential roll. You may only cast one vote within a council area, irrespective of the number of properties or parcels of land you own. Registration is not compulsory.

If you were on the non-residential roll previously and you are still eligible to be on that roll, you should re-apply to be included on the new roll.
