Reform support package - Mid-July 2021 announcement

The Prime Minister and Minister of Local Government have announced a comprehensive three waters support package and discussed the forward partnership with Local Government New Zealand (LGNZ) on the reform proposals. Below you will find a link to the full press release and more detailed frequently asked questions (FAQs) sheet on the reform package, including the proposed individual council funding allocations.

A key part of this announcement is that the Government and LGNZ have recommitted to working in partnership with the local government sector not just on these reforms, but on other challenges and opportunities. This is reflected in a joint central/local government statement released by the Government and LGNZ (linked below).
