Have your say on changes to LGA boundary

30/11/2020


Georges River Council is proposing amendments to existing shared boundaries of adjoining local government areas (LGAs).

The proposed changes follow logical boundaries, helping people easily identify with their local Council and benefit from its services.

The identified areas for boundary adjustments include parts of Riverwood, Beverly Hills and Narwee, between the Georges River Council LGA and Watson Electoral Division boundary lines, by making use of the M5 motorway which lies on the Watson boundary line and the natural boundary of Salt Pan Creek.

The proposal recognises that the M5 motorway creates a hard physical barrier, which didn’t exist when the original local government boundaries were established.

The proposed change would unite the communities of interest south of the M5. Additionally, the area could be more efficiently and effectively serviced by Georges River Council as an extension of current service arrangements.

The other proposed area is located east of the Georges River Council LGA boundary, currently sitting within the Cook Electoral Division, bounded by President Avenue in the Bayside LGA.

The amalgamation of this area would result in the northern part of the Federal Electoral Division of Cook being located within the Georges River LGA, and would unite the identified communities of interest around the Kogarah town centre, Sans Souci, Ramsgate, Sandringham, Ramsgate Beach, and Dolls Point.

The proposal makes sense in terms of service efficiency opportunities for the maintenance, promotion and use of important sport and recreation assets. These include the north-south sport and open spaces spine, and the Rockdale Wetlands Corridor which includes Scarborough Park, Scarborough Park North and Leo Smith Reserve.
