With only 13,900 residents, Hunters Hill Council is the smallest of all LGAs in NSW. It is now facing the prospect of being amalgamated with Lane Cove, Mosman, North Sydney, Willoughby and two-thirds of Ryde Councils to form a mega council.
In this scenario, Hunters Hill residents would be represented by less than one Councillor (0.68) in a massive new region.
Residents may complain that our local Council has let us down in the past and has not acted in the best interests of the community. The question is now: what would happen to Hunters Hill with just 0.68 Councillor to represent us?
This is a major change in the democratic process. After years of talk, and promises that there would be ‘no forced amalgamations’, it seems that the State Government is about to take action.
