The NSW Government has released a Merger Proposal to create a new eastern beaches council by merging Randwick with neighbouring Waverley and Woollahra Councils.

This would create a new council of 274,000 residents spanning the eastern suburbs from Watsons Bay to La Perouse and deliver cost savings.

The proposal is currently on public exhibition and submissions can be made online to the Office of Local Government by 5pm Sunday 28 February 2016.

The Office of Local Government Delegate Dr Robert Lang is coordinating two public inquiries where members of the public can attend and speak.
