Council mergers update

30 March 2016

 

The NSW Government has announced a review of Council boundaries that proposes the merging of several north shore Councils, including BBP’s Partner Councils.  


BBP, a joint Council service funded by Ku-ring-gai, North Sydney and Willoughby City Councils is committed to working in partnership with the local business community towards success through sustainability. To achieve this, BBP and our Partner Councils recognise the need to inform, involve and consult with businesses.   

With this in mind, BBP will update our member businesses regarding the NSW Governments Council Boundary Review process so businesses can stay informed about the latest developments and the views and opinions of local businesses be considered as part of the submission process.
