Notice of intention to extend suspension of the Norfolk Island Regional Council

In line with the requirements, and my powers, under the Local Government Act 1993 (NSW) (NI), today I issued a notice to the Mayor and councillors of my intention to extend the suspension of the Norfolk Island Regional Council (NIRC) and the appointment of interim administrator Michael Colreavy, while the public inquiry is under way. 

The Mayor and councillors will have an opportunity to make comments, which I will take into account when making my decision.

I remain committed to the good governance of Norfolk Island and ensuring the best outcomes for the Norfolk Island community.

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