Randwick Council to mount legal challenge to merger proposal

Share on facebook

May 16, 2017

Randwick City Council will commence legal proceedings against the NSW Government in an attempt to prevent a merger with Woollahra and Waverley Councils.

The decision was reached at an Extraordinary Meeting on 9 May 2017, but was put on hold following a rescission motion lodged the same night which has since been withdrawn.

Woollahra Council was granted leave on 12 May 2017 to appeal to the High Court.

Randwick Council’s legal advice found the Council has grounds of appeal.

“Randwick Council’s position has consistently been that we are financially viable and strong enough to stand alone,” Randwick Mayor Noel D’Souza said.

“With the climate changing it’s prudent that we consider our options.”

The Council resolved to publicly release its legal advice to establish and enhance the credibility and transparency of Council’s actions.
