Introduction

In order to find out what our community (both residents and ratepayers) thinks about voluntary amalgamations, Glamorgan Spring Bay Council is undertaking a short community survey.  The aim of the survey is to gauge in broad terms community interest in amalgamations.  It is designed to find out how you feel about the topic, whether you are 'for' or 'against' amalgamations and what the preferred options might be.

The Council website contains a report prepared by KPMG that considered potential outcomes and scenarios for the different amalgamation options and a summary information sheet for your ease of reference. The Councils included within the scope of the KPMG South East Councils Feasibility Study were Clarence City Council, Glamorgan Spring Bay Council, Sorell Council and Tasman Council. Please visit www.gsbc.tas.gov.au and go to Your Council and Local Government Reform to view or download a copy of the report and information sheet.

All residents and ratepayers are encouraged to complete this online survey.

If you are unable to complete the survey online, please call Council on (03) 6256 4777 between 8am and 5pm, Monday to Friday and a printed copy of the survey can be mailed to you along with a reply paid envelope for its return.
