The Holroyd City Council was a local government area in the western suburbs of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. First proclaimed in July 1872 as the "Municipal District of Prospect and Sherwood", it became the "Municipality of Prospect and Sherwood" from 1906 and in 1927 it was renamed the "Municipality of Holroyd" after Arthur Holroyd, the first mayor. From 1 January 1991, city status was granted, becoming the Holroyd City Council. The administrative centre of the City was located in the suburb of Merrylands, located approximately 25 kilometres (16 mi) west of the Sydney central business district.

The final Mayor of the Holroyd City Council was Councillor Greg Cummings, a member of the Labor Party. On 12 May 2016, the majority of Holroyd City Council merged into the newly formed Cumberland Council, with a small northern section merged into the newly re-formed City of Parramatta Council.

Council history[edit]

First proclaimed in July 1872 as the Municipal District of Prospect and Sherwood.[2] The first council, consisting of six aldermen at-large, was elected on 30 August 1872.[3] The council became the Municipality of Prospect and Sherwood from 1906 and on 11 January 1927 it was renamed the Municipality of Holroyd after Arthur Holroyd, the first mayor.[4] From 1 January 1991, city status was granted, becoming the Holroyd City Council. Originally located at the Council Chambers in Merrylands West from 1915, the administrative centre of Holroyd was located in the suburb of Merrylands from 1962.[5][6] The Holroyd Administration Centre was officially opened by the Premier of New South Wales, Bob Heffron, on 19 June 1962.[7]

Council amalgamation[edit]

A 2015 review of local government boundaries by the NSW Government Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal recommended that Holroyd merge with adjoining councils. The government considered two proposals. The first proposed a merger of parts of Auburn, Holroyd and Parramatta to form a new council with an area of 72 square kilometres (28 sq mi) and support a population of approximately 219,000.[8]

The second proposed a merger of parts of Parramatta, Auburn, The Hills Shire, Hornsby Shire, and a small section of Holroyd (in the suburb of Holroyd) to form a new council with an area of 82 square kilometres (32 sq mi) and support a population of approximately 215,725.[9]

On 12 May 2016, Holroyd City Council, along with parts of the Auburn (South of the M4 Western Motorway) and the Parramatta (Woodville Ward) city councils merged to form Cumberland Council,[10] with a smaller minority in the suburbs of Holroyd, Mays Hill and Parramatta becoming part of the new City of Parramatta Council.[11]
