Voluntary Amalgamation & Shared Services Community Consultation

The Voluntary Amalgamation/Shared Services community consultation has now closed.

Background

Clarence City Council recently participated in two feasibility studies on the pros and cons of possible amalgamations and shared services (or not) with six neighbouring councils which were interested in being involved.

The first study looked at Councils in the South East which included Clarence, Sorell, Tasman and Glamorgan Spring Bay.

The second study looked at Greater Hobart which involved Clarence, Hobart, Glenorchy and Kingborough.

The studies identified 10 options. Seven of these options relate directly to Clarence.

A survey and information booklet was distributed to residents of Clarence from September.

The survey closed on Friday 24 November 2017.

Council is currently considering the results from the survey with a report to Council on the survey findings expected shortly.

Council would like to thank the community for having a say on this issue.
