State Government announces council mergers will not proceed

28 July 2017


The NSW State Government announced on Thursday 27 July that council mergers will no longer proceed.

Willoughby Council welcomes certainty for the future of our community. During the proclamation period, we continued to focus upon service delivery and sound planning while undertaking reforms that position the City well for the future.

Our financial position is strong, our reserves are healthy and our assets in good condition.

The Chatswood CBD planning strategy, delivery of upgraded sports and recreation facilities and continued advocacy for school and transport infrastructure are some of our recent initiatives seeking to assure good outcomes for the community.

We will continue to increase our influence in regional decision making and service efficiencies, by partnering and working with government and other key stakeholders. Examples include our strategic planning input around the Greater Sydney Commission’s North District Plan, and our work combining waste services with other Local Government Areas.
