Mid-Coast Council

Stronger Councils | Stronger Communities

Information courtesy of NSW Government

On 12 May 2016 the Minister for Local Government, Paul Toole, announced the newly formed “Mid-Coast” Council.

Stronger more efficient councils will work harder for residents and deliver better services and infrastructure like roads, parks, playgrounds and sporting facilities.

  • Each new council will receive up to $15 million to invest in community projects like junior sporting facilities, playgrounds and library or pool upgrades.
  • Each new council will receive up to $10 million to streamline administrative processes and cut red tape. (Unspent funds may be redirected to community projects)
  • Ratepayers, in new council areas, will have their rates protected against future increases, meaning they will pay no more for their rates than they would have under their old council for 4 years.

Elections for new councils will take place on 9 September 2017. 

Details of the new council are contained in the proclamation, click on the following link for the download of the proclamation and boundary information.

    Small towns like Stroud will be forgotten. We need to keep Karen Hutchinson batting for Stroud otherwise we will be lost in the Maze. Stroud, fill the School of Arts at the next Community Meeting.
