The Economic Impacts of Local Government Amalgamations

There has been a long-running debate about the financial sustainability of all Australian Local Governments and the role they play in our three-tiered structure of Federalism. Currently, the issue is being played out in NSW via the ‘Fit for the Future’ process, which is asking all NSW LGAs to prove their financial sustainability and consider means of becoming ‘financially fit for the future’.

Amalgamating Councils is one of the options being discussed to improve financial sustainability. Amalgamations are contentious and there has been considerable research and commentary on the issue for more than a decade.
