The South East Avon Regional Transition Group is a collaborative approach to the Local Government structural reform process as a follow up to the highly successful and industry recognised SEAVROC partnership.
The Regional Transition Group is currently undertaking business planning to quantify, analyse and assess the potential for a merger of all or some of the members as an acknowledgement of sustainability priorities and principles, changing regional and funding methods to ensure protection of identity and local service delivery and to provide governance at the local level.
This group of Local Governments has been and will continue to be proactive in resource sharing, partnerships, collaboration and co-operation to provide local and regional benefits for our communities.
Together the five Shires cover an area of 9,319 sq kms, have road lengths of 3,777 kms, combined rate revenus of $8,788,717, total revenue of $25,118,694 and employ 124 staff.
The RTG has received significant funding from the Government for Forward Capital Plans, Asset Management Plans, Community Strategic Plans, 10 Year Financial Plans and the Structural Reform Business Plan.
Consultants approved and accredited by the Department of Local Government have undertaken all of the above tasks and final documentation is expected in March 2012 after which each individual Local Government will determine the next steps, if any, in the structural reform process.
