City of Perth expands, but not to Burswood

The state government will legislate to include the University of Western Australia, Kings Park, the QEII Medical Centre and the City of Vincent in the City of Perth, but will not include the Burswood Peninsula after that proposal was rejected by the independent Local Government Advisory Board.

Don't make Barnett's mistake and get too far ahead of yourselves. The fat lady hasn't sung yet. All this could be undone by the Supreme Court. And even Barnett's proposed City of Perth Act isn't guaranteed to have Parliamentary support.

Hi Ian, my understanding is that the boundary changes were approved by the Governor yesterday, and so have the effect of law. The results of the Supreme Court action and any referendum are pending, however.
