Options for regional governance - what happens next?
Over April and early May, Porirua City Council and other councils sought comments on a single council for the region with either one or two tiers of representation. The public consultation period for that has now closed.
The Working Party of the four councils (Porirua City, Kapiti Coast District, Wellington City and Greater Wellington region) is now considering the feedback and the councils will meet separately to consider and decide whether or not to support an application to the Local Government Commission in June.
To supplement the information gathered through submissions and public meetings, Porirua, Wellington and Kapiti are conducting surveys of their residents. In Porirua, the survey is running through May. For more information on the survey, visit the Local Government Reform Public Consultation page.
For more information on the two models that have been considered, visit the shared website, www.regionalreform.org.nz and our Local Government Reform News and Local Government Reform Public Consultation pages.
