Georges River Council is seeking the community’s view of a proposal to amend the current local government boundaries. See below for details on each proposal and view the corresponding maps, listed in Documents.

Proposal 1 (see Map: Proposal 1)

The area located in Riverwood 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 which is also the boundary of the State Electoral District of Oatley. These areas are currently located within the Canterbury Bankstown LGA.

Details:

Proposal 1 recognises that the M5 motorway creates a hard physical barrier, which did not exist when the original local government boundaries between the former Hurstville and Bankstown Councils (now Georges River Council and City of Canterbury Bankstown) were created. The proposed change would unite the communities of interest south of the M5. Additionally, the area could be more efficiently and effectively serviced by the Georges River Council as an extension of current service arrangements.

Proposal 2 (see Map: Proposal 2)

The area located east of the Georges River Council LGA boundary which is located in the Cook Electoral Division, bounded by President Avenue. This area is currently located within the Bayside LGA. This amalgamation would result in the entire Federal Electoral Division of Cook located north of the Georges River being located within the Georges River LGA.

Details:

This proposal would unite the identified communities of interest around the Kogarah town centre (and the Kogarah Collaboration Area), Sans Souci, Ramsgate, Ramsgate Beach, and Dolls Point. Further, the proposal would create service efficiency opportunities for the maintenance, promotion and use of important sport and recreation assets.

Proposal 3 - combination of Proposals 1 and 2 (see Map: Proposal 3)

Proposal 3 would provide opportunity for increased service efficiencies and unite identified communities of interest, as detailed above.
