Forced Council merger is likely to go ahead

Following the rejection of the previous Delegate report by the Land & Environment Court, the Delegate has now issued his revised report recommending that the merger of Strathfield, Canada Bay and Burwood Councils proceed.

The report is dated September 2016 but was only made public on 21 December 2016 and gives until 20 January 2017 for any public submissions to be made.

Council made representations to the State Government demanding that such a tight deadline be extended given the Christmas/New Year holiday period to allow sufficient time for Council and any residents to review and respond appropriately to such a significant document. However, the State Government has now declined to extend the deadline.

Residents can review the Delegate’s revised report on the Strathfield Council website at https://dpcsc-ss.s3.amazonaws.com/Uploads/1482211006/Strathfield.pdf.  

If residents wish to make any representations to Council for possible inclusion in Council’s submission, any representations must be sent to submissions@strathfield.nsw.gov.au and received by Council no later than 15 January 2017.
