The Change Commission report backs Ipswich divisional shifts.

A Government review has recommended the Ipswich City Council be re-divided into four multi-member divisions...represented by two Councillors each, plus a Mayor...making a total of nine Council representatives.

The change is recommended in a report by members of the Change Commission, who told The Courier Mail...they considered the proposed changes to be in the public interest.

The changes are also in line with Ipswich community consultation into the issue, in which nearly 90% of respondents ranked multi-member divisions, as either their first or second preference.
