Last week the Cockburn Community Steering Group (CSG), comprising
community representatives, held a rally at Parliament House to present more than 12,000 signatures of support for their Community Proposal for a merger between Cockburn and Kwinana (minus Leeming).
The State Governments proposed boundary map seeks to divide Cockburn
suburbs between the cities of Fremantle, Cockburn and Kwinana.
You may ask: What does it really matter if I come under
a new local government?
Thank you to everyone for signing the Petition, we managed to gather almost 11,000 signatures!
