Options for regional governance
The Local Government Commission has been considering applications to change the shape of local government in three regions (Wellington, Northland and Hawke’s Bay). The Commission recently announced that it would not be making an announcement on any of the proposals until after the general election on 20 September 2014. A full description of the current stages with each of the proposals can be found in the Commission’s media statement of 27 June 2014 (pdf).
