Local government reform


Local government reform

Greater Wellington Regional Council’s application to create a new Wellington Council to replace the region’s nine existing councils has been lodged with the Local Government Commission.

The Application for Local Government Reorganisation proposes a shared governance model that will see the council made up of a governing body and local boards.

The application was submitted following detailed analysis and consultation, including that carried out by the Local Government Reform Working Party.
