Rochelle Porteous

Inner West residents were shocked to be told by the council’s general manager that they were effectively being shut out of the preparation of the demerger case. Peter Boyle reports.

A cross-party alliance has come behind a renewed call for the forcibly merged councils in NSW to de-amalgamate. Pip Hinman reports.

Inner West Council Mayor Rochelle Porteous won support for a motion to consult residents about re-establishing residents’ precinct committees. Isaac Nellist reports.

A well-attended online meeting organised by Inner West Council discussed the NSW government’s bill which removed council as the consent authority covering Sydney's parklands. Rachel Evans reports. 

Inner West Council is the first of the forcibly amalgamated councils in NSW to give residents a direct say on a demerger. But, as Pip Hinman reports, it will distribute questionable information to residents.

In a shift of alliances, Inner West councillors elected the Greens’ Rochelle Porteous as the new mayor, reports Pip Hinman.

Labor councillors' attempts to stop a residents' poll on de-amalgamation from proceeding at the local government elections in September has been thwarted, writes Pip Hinman.
