Premier confirms election timing
NSW Premier Ms Gladys Berejiklian has confirmed that the next election for merged local councils, including the Central Coast Council, will be held on September 9.
The Premier had last week refused to rule out changing the timing of the election or extending the current period of administration for the Central Coast Council.
Ms Berejiklian announced on Tuesday, February 14, that all merged councils across NSW would remain in place.
"I am looking forward to the local government elections in September to restore local decision-making to our regions," Ms Berejilkian said.
"New councils across NSW have been working hard to deliver better services for their communities," she said.
"Residents and ratepayers would be worse off if this was undone."
