NSW Government's plans for amalgamation
today the NSW Government announced its proposal to merge Pittwater and
the suburbs of North Warringah to form a new council.
Pittwater Mayor Jacqueline Townsend said Pittwater Council is pleased
that local MPs listened to the community on the importance of retaining
local identity and local representation, and it welcomes the
Government’s support of its merger preference.
"Although the community wants to stand alone and retain independence in
the first instance, a two council model would be a great outcome for
the community,” Cr Townsend said.
“With standing alone now off the table, two councils would maintain
local democracy and local character and identity, issues that are at
the heart of our community,” she said.
The NSW Government has recognised that two more equally balanced and
specialised councils will deliver more effective catchment management
and economic development for the region, a structure that would provide
for a strong sustainable new council.
“We are also pleased that the State Government has reconsidered the
issue of population size and recognises that a population size of
approximately 150,000 has the strategic capacity to deliver high
quality services whilst remaining connected to our communities.
“The two equally balanced councils would lead to even better services,
more infrastructure and downward pressure on rates.
The government’s proposed relocation of Pittwater’s boundary includes
Terrey Hills, Narrabeen, Collaroy, Collaroy Plateau, Cromer, Wheeler
Heights, Oxford Falls, Frenchs Forest, Duffys Forrest, Belrose,
Davidson, Forestville and Killarney Heights.
The government is proposing the new council receive $10 million to
cover the costs of merging as well as an additional $10 million from
the Stronger Communities Fund for community infrastructure projects,
across the new local government area.
“For the time being it’s ‘business as usual’ for Pittwater, although we
will be focused on connecting with our community and getting their
input as well as working with our neighbours and the State Government
during the next steps of the reform process,” she added.
The NSW Government has summarised its proposals with accompanying maps,
and has identified a 10 step process to create new councils. For
