Four Queensland communities will elect new local governments after voting to split from larger councils.

Residents and ratepayers in Noosa, Livingstone, Mareeba and Douglas voted in March to reform their old councils after forced amalgamations with larger councils five years ago.

The elections will be held on November 9 with the smaller councils to take charge on January 1.

Councillors currently representing the four regions in larger councils will continue to serve on the smaller councils.
