Barcaldine Regional Council and adjoining councils

The Change Commission has been asked to assess a boundary change between the Barcaldine Regional Council (BRC) and the Blackall Tambo Regional Council, Charters Towers Regional Council, Central Highlands Regional Council, Flinders Shire Council, Isaac Regional Council and Longreach Regional Council.

This proposal would unite 26 lots that are currently split between BRC and the neighbouring councils.

Consultation

The Change Commission has been consulting with the councils and landholders, to clarify the lots that would be affected by the proposal.

It has also been seeking feedback from stakeholders about their preferred placement of these lots.

Final consultation is now underway.

What happens next?

The Change Commission will soon prepare its final determination report and provide it to the public and the Minister responsible for Local Government.

It is expected the report will be available in mid-2022.
