Opposing Woollahra Amalgamation
15 March 2016
Residents of Woollahra council overwhelmingly don’t want their local government area merged with Randwick and Waverly and in Parliament I again called on the government to honour their wishes during debate on a petition signed by 10,000 petitioners. The proposed merger risks higher rates, reduced heritage protections and loss of grassroots representation. Woollahra is a unique area and there is no social or economic reason to change its local governance structure.
