Enoggera – Brisbane 2020

Council margin – LNP 5.6%
Mayoral margin – LNP 7.6%

Incumbent councillor
Andrew Wines, since 2008.

Geography
Northern Brisbane. Enoggera covers Gaythorne, Mitchelton, Newmarket, Wilston, Windsor and parts of Ashgrove.

Redistribution
Enoggera shifted east, gaining the remainder of Windsor from Hamilton and the remainder of Grange Heights from Marchant, and losing Keperra to The Gap. These changes increased the LNP’s margin from 4.8% to 5.6%.

History

Labor’s Ann Bennison won Enoggera ward in 1994, winning re-election in 1997, 2000 and 2004.

In 2008, Bennison retired, with Labor defending a 9.2% margin. A 10% swing saw Liberal candidate Andrew Wines narrowly elected, and in 2012 he was re-elected with a 14.7% swing.

Wines suffered an 11% swing in 2016, but was re-elected to a third term.

Candidates

Assessment
Enoggera is a marginal ward and could be in play if there is a significant swing back to Labor. If there was a uniform swing, the loss of Enoggera would deprive the LNP of their majority.
