Labor and Liberal Councillors on Leichhardt Council have voted to investigate a merger with Marrickville and Ashfield Councils.
Councils like leichhardt council have a well-deserved reputation for standing up to the ruinous plans of developers and state government bureaucrats and defending the rights of local residents. The coalition government’ does not want road blocks to its plans to bring high rise development and Westconnex into Balmain, Lilyfield, Leichhardt, Annandale and Rozelle. The best way to remove effective opposition to their plans is to remove local councils and silence their voice in standing up for their residents.
