    Melbourne Town Hall Welcomes Our City’s New Lord Mayor
    Democracy

CoRBA

represents community and business groups in the City of Melbourne.

Our Mission

The primary goal of CoRBA Melbourne is to bring democracy, equitable representation and good governance to the City of Melbourne.

Why?

The residents and ratepayers in Melbourne are unique in the State in being without fair and equitable local Government representation. Unlike all other Victorian municipalities, the City of Melbourne Act means there is no provision for a periodic review of the electoral system. Our governance is flawed and vulnerable to fraud and has been so over successive elections.
The State Government remains intransigent on the over-due reform of the governance of our Council, and has repeatedly ignored the wishes of Council and the community to review our democratic rights .

‣The Council to effectively and inclusively disseminate information about decision making and processes
