Mayor and Councillors
Council is made up of twelve Councillors and a popularly elected Mayor. The twelve Councillors each represent one of the four wards that make up Willoughby, while the Mayor represents all the wards. Councillors are voted in by the local community every four years to represent them on local public issues.
An election for the new Councillors who will represent the community for the 2021-2024 term was held on Saturday 4 December 2021. View the NSW Electoral Commission progressive count result
