City of Holdfast Bay municipal offices in Brighton (formerly the Brighton Town Hall), opened in 1937.

The City of Holdfast Bay is a local government area in the south-western coastal suburbs of Adelaide, South Australia.


The council was formed 1 January 1997, when the former councils of Glenelg and Brighton were amalgamated by the State government. As a result there are two council offices, one in the historic Glenelg Library on Colley Terrace and the other on Jetty Road Brighton.


The council has had 3 mayors: Brian Nadilo, Ken Rollond and the current mayor is Stephen Patterson (elected November 2014).



The council is split into four ward divisions from which three councillors are elected to represent the area (excluding the mayor). They are the Glenelg Ward, Somerton Ward, Brighton Ward and Seacliff Ward.
