Our fit future

Consultation has concluded

The Government has announced its intention for Lake Macquarie City Council to remain a stand-alone organisation.

The decision comes after a lengthy government decision-making process, which included numerous Government assessments of Council’s ability to operate efficiently as an individual organisation.

Council has stated in numerous submissions throughout the Fit for the Future process, it is providing good-quality daily services to its 202,000 residents, and has the strategies in place to continue to be a sustainable and efficient Council.

Council is pleased the NSW Government’s proposal is reflective of residents’ wishes, which were consistently supportive of Lake Macquarie standing alone.
