 STOP PRESS

Lane Cove and Hunter’s Hill Councils have won their appeals against amalgamation in the Court of Appeal NSW Supreme Court.

Perhaps a bit academic now, with the Premier’s announcement that amalgamation has been scrapped but the good news is that costs have been awarded in favour of the Councils.

You can read the judgement on https://www.caselaw.nsw.gov.au/decision/597a753de4b058596cba8db1

And the next GCA general meeting has been postponed to 7:30 pm Wednesday 23 August. We hope many of our East Ward election candidates will join us.

More information in our newsletter.
