The City of Cockburn is running a campaign to save the city from being “carved up” under the proposed local government amalgamations. The City has published a special “Goodbye Cockburn” edition of Cockburn Soundings on local government reform that is being sent to all ratepayers.

Cockburn is requesting ratepayers to sign petitions that urge the state government to maintain the City of Cockburn within its current boundaries.

The BRG Committee has reviewed the materials published by Cockburn and has resolved to take no active involvement in the City’s campaign.

Yes. Banjup has (and) always been  under the city  of  Cockburn.  We  MUST remain within  the boundaries of  Cockburn;  we  have all  (I am sure) have heard about  "location,  location".  A  house on the Cockburn and Armadale  (Forestdale) was advertised ä beautiful home in Banjup". A person  from  our  street phoned the Vendors and complained.  The Vendors had  a  buyer, but when  he  realised  it  was  NOT  Banjup,  the cost of  the  house  dropped nearly 1  million
