‚ÄčThe State Government initiated an agenda for local government reform in 2009. A total of 47 local governments participated in the voluntary reform program. In October 2014, the State Government announced plans for changes to metropolitan local government boundaries and foreshadowed a City of Perth Act. Some of the changes involved boundary adjustments; others were proposed amalgamations subject to community polls. The proposed changes were put on hold by the State Government in February 2015.
