What is good representation?

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

Legislation requires there to be fair and effective representation for individuals and communities when it comes to electing the mayor and councillors for an area.

Fair representation is about each councillor representing an approximately equal number of people.

Effective representation is about the total number of councillors there are in relation to things like the size and geography of the area and the diversity of its people. Being effective can be considered, for example, in terms of how easy access is to your local councillor or councillors and how well councillors are able to represent the diverse range of people and interests in their area.
