Extension of temporary suspension of the Norfolk Island Regional Council

On 27 April, I signed an order to extend the temporary suspension of the Norfolk Island Regional Council (NIRC) and the appointment of the interim administrator, Mr Michael Colreavy, for a further three months.

This has been done in line with the requirements of, and my authority under, the Local Government Act 1993 (NSW) (NI).

While the NIRC has made progress towards restoring its proper or effective functioning during the current term of the interim administrator, more work is required. It is important an interim administrator continues to oversee these efforts.

I will continue to keep you informed as any decisions are made.
