Collingwood Council And Councillors
Collingwood Council started in 1855 as the Municipality of East Collingwood. It grew to become the City of Collingwood in 1876 and continued as such until 1994 when it was amalgamated into the City of Yarra.
Many councillors appear in the Collingwood Notables database, ranging from Sir Francis Murphy chairman of the first council to Andrew McCutcheon a councillor from the late 1960s to the early 1980s, who died in 2017. Search the database Collingwood Notable People using the word ‘councillor’ to find others.
Councillors to be added to the database in the coming year include Marion Miller, Rita Jamieson, our first woman councillor, and Theo Sidiropoulos, our first Greek councillor.
