Amalgamation Map

The attached map which is open for appraisal and discussion is a variation endeavouring to ensure that communities of common interest are not isolated as is currently the case with what has been proposed in the original merger proposal. 

It is recognising the cultural, social and economic ties which local communities have with Braidwood and Bungendore and in turn with Goulburn and Queanbeyan as well as attempting to create a realistic area that can be made workable, practical and manageable by each of the two new councils.
The plan has been drawn to minimise as much as possible any impact upon private property boundaries. It also follows former historical Council Boundaries which have worked previously, plus geographical features which naturally divide communities. 
Boundary variation description as follows:

In principle the draft boundary would follow the Federal Highway from the vicinity of Collector south along the foreshores of Lake George to then link with the former Mulwaree/Yarrowlumla Shire boundary, then heading eastwards to link with the former Tallaganda/Yarrowlumla Council boundary, then southwards along this boundary to a point at the head of Bourkes Creek which lays within the Tallaganda SF, then following Bourkes Creek SE to the Shoalhaven River, then upstream to the junction of Tallaganda Creek, then along Tallaganda Creek to The Bendoura Range which is within the Deua NP, then south following the ridgeline to meet the Eurobodalla Shire Boundary in the vicinity of Mulway Ridge. All of the territory east of this boundary within Palerang to be merged with Goulburn Mulwaree and the territory west to be merged with Queanbeyan City.

Some of the residents in the Araluen have expressed the desire to be transferred to Eurobodalla. Under the current proposal that will not be possible. However a line has been drawn on the map in yellow identifying a possible boundary for the Araluen Valley if all parties may be agreeable to such a transfer in the future. This will only be made possible if the entire Araluen Valley is merged with Goulburn Mulwaree.
