Department of Premier and Cabinet
WolfPeak provided expert resource to undertake the independent examination of three proposals to merge councils. This included undertaking public inquiries, receiving submissions and making recommendations to the Minister. Six public inquiries were held across the areas of the three councils involved in the merger proposals. Over 800 people attended the inquiries with over 120 speakers presenting their views. WolfPeak produced a high quality evidence based report from the work recommending a merger outcome that was not aligned to the Ministers original proposal. The Minister ultimately adopted the outcome proposed by WolfPeak in contrast to his original proposal.
