Let the community decide

Join our Campaign to bring back our local councils!

Dear NSW Parliament,

We call on every NSW MP to commit to legislation that allows residents to vote in a binding de-merger plebiscite in any council that has been forced to merge by the Baird Government.

If a majority of residents support their council standing alone, then the law must provide for a council to be reinstated and a de-merger to occur at the soon as possible.

We make this demand because we believe that the community -- residents and local businesses-- not Mike Baird,  should decide the future of their local councils.

    I want local representation so I have a voice what is happening in my local community as it is at the present time only the state government has a voice and that voice is about ‘money and greed’.

    There has been no compelling evidence to support the Baird government’s claims that there are significant benefits to residents from council mergers in Sydney. I am very concerned about the decisions that will be pushed through while there are no elected representatives on the Inner West Council. I call for the democratic rights of local residents to be restored immediately.

    There was NO mandate for such a removal of Democratic rights.

    Peter Gregory. I oppose the Baird state government’s undemocratic sacking of your local elected representatives and call on every NSW MP to commit to legislation that allows residents to vote in a binding de-merger plebiscite in any council that has been forced to merge by the Baird Government.

    I’m most opposed to an undemorcratic and hostile process.
