Council Amalgamations 2016

13 January 2016

Ignoring Woollahra Council’s strong economic position, social achievements and the wishes of its residents, the government will amalgamate it with Waverley and Randwick councils. The Boundaries Commission will be reformed and conduct a public process on the proposal and other proposed mergers, bypassing Parliament. If mergers go ahead, I will push to maintain services and limit disruptions. Public inquiry sessions are on 4 February and submissions due 28 February: https://www.councilboundaryreview.nsw.gov.au/proposals/randwick-city-waverley-and-woollahra-municipal-councils/.  

I welcome the government’s recognition that the City of Sydney is financially and socially strong and any change to its boundaries would put its position and Sydney’s global city status at risk.
