Your Say Marrickville

Residents urged to have their say on forced amalgamation of Marrickville, Ashfield and Leichhardt Councils

The Minister for Local Government Paul Toole has proposed to forcibly merge Marrickville, Ashfield and Leichhardt, and the State Government has now commenced the process, with the Minister stating he expects the new entity to be in place by mid-year.

The State Government is now once again calling on the community to express their views on this issue. Marrickville Council has already stated a clear preference to remain stand-alone, and 75% of Marrickville residents also say they do not want to merge.
