The Hills. Going it alone

The Hills Shire Council has accused the Western Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils (WSROC) of not delivering on issues in Sydney’s north west and plans to leave the regional lobby group on June 30. The Hills Shire Council will focus on developing the North West sector as a brand of it’s own. “WSROC has not delivered to us in terms of infrastructure and funding and this council will not continue to pay an on-going subscription of nearly $70k (annually) for little or no return. The inequity this council received at the hands of WSROC will only hold back future success. We are stronger if we move into the future on our own.” He said council would work at strengthening ties with Hawkesbury and Hornsby councils to focus on important issues such as planning, infrastructure, transport and economic development for Sydney Hills. WSROC plans to discuss the issue with council.
