A petition with more than 10,000 signatures of residents opposed to the MidCoast Council centralisation project was delivered to the Legislative Assembly on Wednesday, June 5.
The petition, collected by the No MidCoast Council Move to Masters group, calls for a moratorium and a Parliamentary inquiry into all aspects of the project.
Petition coordinator Katrina Pearson and MidCoast Councillor Jan McWilliams presented the petition to Myall Lakes MP Stephen Bromhead at Parliament House.
They said Mr Bromhead formally lodged the petition the following day and discussion on the petition is listed to be held in the Legislative Assembly on Thursday, August 8.
Ms Pearson said the signatures were collected in 21 days outside pre-poll voting centres for the recent federal election.
