After four hundred people attended a meeting at South Perth Town Hall it is very clear that the residents of South Perth are upset.
Our City and Victoria Park have shared amenities for years. We were negotiating for closer bonds before the Minister was even elected to Parliament. He could have stood back and enjoyed the clapping. By jumping in, moving to abolish South Perth and excise Burswood he’s been like a pigeon in a chess tournament, knocking the pieces over, messing on the board and strutting as if he won the match.
It’s just not good enough. We believe that residents and their elected Councils can make the best decisions about the economy, community and environment for sustainable Local Government. Residents of Western Australia respectfully oppose any action by the State Government to force amalgamation of Local Governments. We also oppose forced abolition of Councils and forced changes of boundaries. We support strongly the right of residents and their elected Councils to decide for themselves about matters related to amalgamations, boundary changes and sharing of services.
