It is time to restore local democracy and wind back amalgamations

Greens-restore-local-democracyThere is a parliamentary package that is simple, democratic and will fix the forced amalgamation mess:

  • Immediately terminating all outstanding forced amalgamations proposals,
  • Immediately de-amalgamating all local councils forcibly merged,
  • Introducing a legislative requirement that any future amalgamations proposals are subject to a binding plebiscite of local residents.

The package would immediately terminate all outstanding forced amalgamations, immediately de-amalgamate all forcibly merged councils and put in place a legislative requirement to ensure that any future amalgamations proposals are subject to a binding plebiscite.

This is the only sensible solution to fix this mess and it must be done immediately.

Sign and share the petition calling for all parties to support this solution.
