When the former Councils of Evandale, Ross, Campbell Town, Longford and part of Fingal were amalgamated to create the Northern Midlands Council in 1993, there was a high level of concern across the municipal area about the loss of the local Council presence and availability. It was decided to establish four District Forums / Committees at Ross, Campbell Town, Evandale and Avoca, Royal George & Rossarden as Special Committees of Council. Council has since introduced additional Special Committees for the Perth, Longford and Cressy areas.

Residents and representatives from community interest groups are invited to nominate for membership of the Local District Committee.
Membership appointment is for a 2-year term, the term of membership commences in July and concludes in June. Current membership expires at 30 June 2021.
