Next Meeting Tuesday 7th May – Please Note the changed Venue
CANCELLED MEETING 21st APRIL – We said we would not reschedule it but matters have arisen that makes it important that WE MEET ASAP.
The important issue is Amalgamation – The state Government is back-flipping on the ‘No Forced Amalgamation’ and we cannot rely on our Council to get the message across to Government that Amalgamation has NO benefits for the Pittwater Community. Pittwater Council meets all the financial, community and cultural requirement of the government ‘Fit for the Future’ rules but fails only on the State Government preferred minimum size of councils, which has no evidentiary support within Australia or around the world.
Members of the NRA executive have met with eleven other Pittwater community organisations and have formed a coordinating committee to ensure all Pittwater Residents are aware of what is happening and supplying those residents with the facts of what it will mean to them plus encourage them to let both the Government and our Council know what we want as a community.
Amalgamation – PLEASE DIARY Public meeting 19th May 2015 6.30 – 8.30pm at the Pittwater RSL Club Mona Vale– (This will clash with our next normal meeting so we have deferred the meeting one week to Tuesday 26th May). Please also see the update to this item by clicking on the Current Issues ‘Amalgamation’ item and reading three attachments prepared by our neighbouring associations which make excellent reading with an explanation the issues.
