The Minister for Local Government makes the final decision, after being informed of the recommendation of the NSW Local Government Boundaries Commission. The Minister can decide to approve or not approve the Business Case regardless of the recommendation of the NSW Local Government Boundaries Commission.
Although we know that the Minister must refer the Business Case to the NSW Local Government Boundaries Commission within 28 days of receiving it, ultimately the timing of any decision is up to the Minister for Local Government.
As per the 26 July 2022 Business Case, and if the de-amalgamation is approved, Council will be lobbying for the NSW Government to fund both the upfront and ongoing/recurrent costs of such a de-amalgamation. These costs are currently estimated at:
