Tingha community poll on boundary amendment

This week Armidale Regional Council conducted a final round of community consultation about the proposal to transfer Tingha and surrounding properties into the Inverell local government area.

All residents and owners of property in the affected area will be surveyed, before the proposal is considered by the new Armidale council.

“A new Armidale Regional Council has been elected since the community was previously consulted on this issue,” Armidale Regional Council Mayor Simon Murray said.

“This is an important issue for the Tingha community, and the Armidale region community as a whole, and should be considered by the new Council for possible endorsement.” 

This valuable process was also an opportunity to ensure all of the affected community was properly consulted, Councillor Murray said.

“It is envisaged this will be final steps in community engagement on the issue, so Council wants to ensure all affected residents and property owners have ample opportunity to express their opinion,” he said.

Residents and ratepayers will receive the poll forms by mail at the start of June and will have until 18 June to submit their completed forms.

Council will hold an information stall outside the Tingha Town Hall on Friday 8 June from 2.30pm to 4.30pm for anyone with questions about the poll and the proposed boundary amendment.
