Constitutional referendum postponed

A Constitutional Referendum to determine the future number of Central Coast Councillors that was scheduled to be held on 4 September 2021 has been postponed to a future date to be determined.

28 July 2021

 

THE Minister for Local Government has published an order in the Gazette under section 318C of the Local Government Act 1993 (the Act) postponing all council elections to 4 December 2021.

 

The decision to postpone all council elections has been made in response to the escalating outbreak of the Delta variant of the COVID-19 virus in Greater Sydney and the potential for further outbreaks in regional areas.

 

Based on this advice, these risks have been considered and the Central Coast Council constitutional referendum will be postponed to a future date.

 

A report recommending a new date and the future conduct of the constitutional referendum will come back to Council.
