Strathfield Council responds to Premier's amalgamation threat

Premier Mike Baird has today announced $1 billion cash ‘incentives’ will be on offfer to councils to amalgamate with neighbours. The Premier has also flagged withholding planning controls from LGAs that reject amalgamation. The Mayor of Strathfield, Cr Daniel Bott, said the plan was deplorable.

"Council has considered this from every angle and it is demonstrably not in the interests of Strathfield residents for us to amalgamate with Burwood, Auburn, Ashfield - or anywhere else. Compared to its neighbours, Strathfield has a superior budget position, lower rates and charges, better infrastructure, and more desirable community assets. Amalgamation would put all of that at risk.

"Yet here we have the Premier of NSW issuing bribes and threats to persuade us to disregard the interests of our community. Strathfield residents, and NSW taxpayers in general, have every right to feel aggrieved their hard-earned money is being spent on such loaded 'incentives.'"
