Petition – call for inquiry into proposed amalgamations in Western Australia

Please see the WSA Petition for an inquiry into proposed amalgamations in Western Australia 

This is a petition by the Western Suburburbs Alliance  (WSA) requesting an urgent inquiry into the proposal to radically and completely restructure the existing community-based system of local government by abolishing all but three (as at 9 September 2014) of the existing Metropolitan local councils.

This proposal is of such magnitude and based on so little actual, factual
and evidenced-based argument, the Legislative Council, acting in its Constitutional role as a House of Review, urgently instigate an independent review of the radical proposal to abolish and completely restructure the existing, well founded
community-based system of local government in the Perth Metropolitan area.

To be returned to my letterbox at 7 Alexander Place, Dalkeith or be delivered to PO Box 634, Claremont by the  close of business on Friday 10th October to allow us to collate it with other copies which are circulating on the south side of the river.  The petition will then be presented to the Hon Simon O’Brien who will table it in the Legislative Council on Tuesday 14th October.
