As for Caulfield, while it only retains 0.94 of a quota, this will remain steady (only dropping to 0.92 by November 2026). As Caulfield currently has strong boundaries and neatly reflects its own community of interest, I see no reason to make the boundaries of Caulfield and Albert Park both less reflective of their own communities when other seats further to the east (for instance Oakleigh and Bentleigh) can be solved through the abolition of Clarinda, a seat which is a hodgepodge mixture of different communities of interest which can be neatly reassigned into the seats of Oakleigh, Bentleigh, Mordialloc, Sandringham, Keysborough, and Mulgrave (which now centres on Springvale). This results in all electorates listed being well within quota, and in turn frees up electors in Hampton and Hampton East to move into Brighton from Sandringham and Bentleigh, respectively, thus returning Brighton to quota also.

The two seats that border it to the east, where changes are more likely to occur, both can easily be placed back into quota by expanding Brighton southward and eastward, and Toorak can be wholly added into Malvern without Prahran becoming under quota.

Then you’ve got St Kilda and the Chapel Street precinct in one seat, which is a pretty strong community of interest.

Toorak can then go into Malvern….maybe some of the areas closer to the city can go back into Albert Park. And Brighton’s northern boundary can stay where it is.

If several seats are abolished in the east and/or south-east, it probably makes more sense to edge Brighton south-east (e.g. taking in all of Hampton) than to move it north into St Kilda.

Electoral boundaries tend to be more focused on infrastructure, geographical features and history than demographics.

Hawthorn and Kew are extremely unlikely to be merged and split into north-south axis seats.

All but a a few small pockets of Elwood, which is relatively similar to St Kilda, are in Brighton. Brighton is likely to move into St Kilda and possibly out of at least parts of Hampton.

Thanks for that info.

Interestingly a seat based on Hawthorn and Kew would be virtually right bang on the VEC’s target.
It also enabled the creation of a seat virtually entirely out of the eastern half of those two seats which would enable Box Hill to remain outside of Boroondara. However, if both seats were to be pushed east, then it looks easier to make Hawthorn work because you could simply add the areas in Burwood west of the Alamain trainline.

Did anyone have issues with the map submission tool because it frozen me out both times before I could get out of the inner city. But, before doing so I was able to recreate a new St Kilda but with an odd shape and the other problem was how to bring Melbourne back under quota without sending areas traditionally in that seat off to neighboring electorates.

Meanwhile in Albert Park I had a problem with St Kilda because at a minimum, some of it could be added to Brighton which I don’t think works demographically. This is why I thought about creating a new seat based on St Kilda.

Perhaps Bayswater could be abolished. Ringwood can pick up Heathmont, Croydon can pick up Bayswater North. All of the suburbs of the Bayswater electorate in Knox Council can go into Ferntree Gully. Ferntree Gully could then loose Wantirna South (South of Burwood Highway) to Rowville. This will likely turn Ferntree Gully into a notional Labor seat while Rowville will become even safer for the Liberals.
