Local Government Reform : The City of Canning

The City is preparing a submission in relation to the Metropolitan Local Government Review Report which in essence recommends the amalgamation of several local governments. Two options have been provided for the City of Canning. If amalgamation is required to be undertaken by metropolitan local governments, the City believes that there are other options and has presented two more possibilities for consideration, in addition to retaining the existing City of Canning boundaries.

The City is seeking your views on this important matter.

We are seeking your views and invite your to read the background document, review the options and have your say by completing the online survey at

Please have your say today.

The comment period closes Friday 15 March 2013 and we encourage you to have your say and to take a moment to forward this email to colleagues, friends and neighbours with a note encouraging them to also have their say.

Notes:  The text above is as appears in an email-out from City of Canning to the distribution list for Your Say Canning!
