Mosman merger abandoned

Posted Friday 28 July 2017

Mosman Council has welcomed the State Government’s decision not to proceed with the forced amalgamation of councils in metropolitan Sydney, including the proposed merger of Mosman Council with Willoughby and North Sydney Councils.

The Council has remained firmly opposed to amalgamation, with numerous resident and ratepayer polls consistently indicating over 80% local support for Mosman to remain independent.

The State Government backdown comes weeks ahead of the election of a new Council on 9 September and the development of a new MOSPLAN next year to guide Council’s efforts over the next decade.
