Shire split still on the cards

PLANS to split the Augusta-Margaret River Shire to create a new Shire of Augusta are going ahead, even though a petition supporting the move was rejected by the Local Government Advisory Board due to a technicality.

There were more than enough valid signatures on the petition but it appeared sheets signed by petitioners were not accompanied by a sheet setting out the proposal as required by regulations.

Local Government Minister Paul Omodei said he was prepared to convert the proposal to a ministerial proposal but will not do so until after the WA election.

Otherwise, the petition organisers will have to repeat the whole process.
