|Title:||Is bigger local government better?: An evaluation of the case for Australian municipal amalgamation programs||Contributor(s):||Dollery, Brian Edward (author); Crase, L (author)||Publication Date:||2004||DOI:||10.1080/0811114042000269290||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/1429||Abstract:||Municipal amalgamations have historically accounted for a substantial reduction in the number of councils in Australia. Proponents of municipal consolidation typically argue that substantial economic benefits will inevitably flow from fewer, larger municipal councils. This article seeks to evaluate the validity of the generic case for council amalgamation in Australia.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Urban Policy and Research, 22(3), p. 265-275||Publisher:||Routledge||Place of Publication:||United Kingdom||ISSN:||1476-7244
