Our Council is opposed to the proposed forced amalgamation of Woollahra with Randwick and Waverley Councils. We recently submitted a formal submission to the Council Boundary Review Public Inquiry detailing our concerns about rate increases, the lack of community benefits, overwhelming community opposition and potential loss of representation and local identity.
The Double Bay Library and the Local History Centre are now closed, while we relocate to our exciting new library in the main shopping hub of Double Bay. The new library is expected to open at the end of May
Woollahra councillors unanimously rejected the NSW Government's proposed new boundaries that will amalgamate the Woollahra municipality with Waverley and Randwick. The proposed merger will mean the people of Woollahra will lose their voice in a much larger amalgamated council.
