Council

New merger proposal for Mosman

Posted Friday 08 April 2016

Following a proposal submitted by Warringah Council to amalgamate Manly, Warringah and Pittwater, the NSW Government has announced a further Merger Proposal for Mosman Council to join with North Sydney and Willoughby.

The new merger proposal for Mosman was dealt with in the same way as the initial merger proposal for Mosman, Manly and (part) Warringah. Community consultation on both proposals has closed.

A report will now be prepared by the Government’s Delegate, Mr Ian Reynolds, on the Mosman, North Sydney and Willoughby merger proposal and be submitted to both the Minister for Local Government and the NSW Boundaries Commission.

Two Public Inquiry meetings were held at Mosman RS Club on Wednesday 23 March and The Chatswood Club on Tuesday 22 March to hear verbal submissions into the NSW Government’s proposal and written public submissions were accepted until 5pm, Friday 8 April 2016.

Another Public Meeting was hosted by Mosman Council at Mosman RS Club on Wednesday 30 March to provide residents with information about the merger proposal and submission process. This public meeting was in addition to the Public Inquiry meetings conducted by the Government’s Delegate, Mr Ian Reynolds, on 22 and 23 March.
