The Town of Lunenburg Council is required by Provincial legislation to conduct a public consultation process every eight years regarding the number and boundaries of polling districts (wards) and Councillors in the Town. The last review was conducted in 2006. It confirmed the number of polling districts as one - the entire Town of Lunenburg, and the number of Council members as six. The results of this public review will be shared with the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board (NSUARB) for further public consultation and decision making.
