About 300 people attended the Save Mosman meeting on 26 October.

Help save Mosman from amalgamation

Posted Friday 02 October 2015

During the next few months the State Government will announce the fate of NSW Councils.

Metropolitan Councils such as Mosman are in the firing line of State Government ‘reforms’, and at real risk of being forcibly merged with neighbouring Councils.

The State Government’s approach is at odds with local community sentiment, demonstrated by nearly 300 residents who attended a public meeting on Monday, 26 October supporting Mosman’s independence.

As part of a larger local government area, Mosman residents and ratepayers risk losing:

  • Control over our services and environment
  • Protection from high rise and other unsuitable development
  • The level and quality of our community and local services
  • Continued free parking at Mosman beaches
  • Our level of representation by local Councillors
  • Local access to Council staff and services

Why should we accept these outcomes?

Mosman Council has provided ample evidence to the State Government that it is well managed and can continue providing high quality services without the need for amalgamation.

The community has repeatedly said it wants Mosman to maintain its independence. It does not want to be swallowed up by other Councils that don’t have Mosman’s best interests at heart!

What can you do?

To keep the ‘local’ in Mosman we need to fight for our future. Help save Mosman by spreading the word and writing to:

  • The Premier, our Local Member and the Minister for Local Government:
