REVIEW: The Change Commission has finalised boundaries for the 2020 Logan City Council election.

Significant growth in suburbs including Flagstone and Yarrabilba has led to significant changes to some divisions so they remain within quota.

The Change Commission published proposed boundaries for all 12 divisions on August 23, which were subject to public consultation.

Public submissions prompted changes to proposed boundaries in divisions four, seven, eight and nine.

Division four will lose Tamborine to Division nine but retain part of Logan Village bounded by the Logan River, including Bobermien Road and Hotz Road.

Division seven will also retain a portion of Park Ridge west of the Mount Lindesay Highway while Division eight will keep part of Regents Park.

The final changes mean Division four is now the smallest electorate with 14,356 voters (down from 18,653) and Division two is the largest with 17,237 voters (up from 16,400).
