Cumberland Council undertook community consultation in relation to a proposed boundary change for Mays Hill.

In 2016 the NSW Government drew boundaries for the new Cumberland Council Local Government Area which saw the suburb of Mays Hill excised to the City of Parramatta with no consultation.

Cumberland Council wants to reinstate Mays Hill as part of Cumberland Council and support you to:

  • Restore historical and cultural links shared by the people of Mays Hill and Cumberland
  • Access high quality services and programs in your local neighbourhood
  • Eliminate fragmented planning to support the future growth of Mays Hill
  • Ensure your rates are invested in your local neighbourhood.

Cumberland Council is committed to putting your rates back into localised services and projects that support a growing and connected community.


Council wrote to people in the affected area seeking your input via a postal survey in August and September 2019. In the postal survey the following question was posed:

Do you support Cumberland Council’s proposed boundary change for Mays Hill?

The community was also invited to submit comments via post or email and on this Have Your Say page.

The proposed boundary adjustment is highlighted in the shaded area of the map below.
