In a random telephone survey (page 46) the people of Pittwater were asked:
“Q8.c If the NSW Government forces councils on the northern beaches to amalgamate which option would you support?
A Greater Manly and Greater Pittwater Council – involving boundary changes that split the existing Warringah Council
A single Council comprising the current local government areas of Pittwater, Warringah and Manly.
I do not support forced amalgamation.”
