Boundaries Commission reports on Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council released by Minister

Wendy Tuckerman – Minister for Local Government

Thursday, 28 July 2022

I have received and published the Local Government Boundaries Commission reports on the proposed demerger of Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council.

In line with my statutory obligations, I will now consider the recommendations from the independent Commission and respond to the demerger proposal in due course.

The Government must provide a written response to the recommendations from the Commission within 28 days of receiving the reports.

I would like to thank Commissioners Bob Sendt and Lesley Furneaux-Cook for their service and contribution to the Commission and the community. Mr Sendt has made the decision to step down as Chairperson of the Commission and Ms Furneaux-Cook’s term on the Commission has now concluded.

The reports can be found here.
