The following message was received this afternoon from Cr Gail Giles- Gidney – Mayor of Willoughby.
I have received a call late this afternoon from Minister Toole’s office
They confirmed that the “Northern Beaches” proposal of a merger of Manly, Pittwater and Warringah is in order and has been accepted for further consideration by the Boundaries Commission.
As a result of this, a further proposal will be also considered by the Boundaries Commission of a Mosman, North Sydney and Willoughby merger.
Ian Reynolds has been appointed as the Delegate for this proposal and will be in touch with us in the coming days. Another community consultation meeting will be held and the closing date for submissions will be the 8th of April. They will not be issuing a full report into this proposal. The Boundaries Commission website has been updated to reflect this additional proposal.
