Merger Transition Plan for Cumberland Council

Client:

Cumberland Council

Location:

NSW

Morrison Low was brought in by the three former councils merged into the Cumberland Council. Holroyd, Auburn and Parramatta City Councils engaged us to develop a merger transition plan to guide what, at that stage, was a likely merger in the future. Within ten days of starting the project, the merger was announced. The new council was in a good position to undertake the immediate transition requirements due to the pre-merger preparation. The priority was to ensure that customers were able to conduct the usual business and informed staff were enabled to do so.
