Statement of Policy Direction for the Review of the Local Government Act 1974
Synopsis: This document provides a brief outline of the approach being taken towards the development of a new Local Government Act (LGA). The aim of the review is to achieve a new statute which:

  • reflects a coherent overall strategy on local government
  • will involve a move to a more broadly empowering legislative framework under which local authorities can meet the needs of their communities
  • involves the development of a partnership relationship between central and local government
  • clarifies local government's relationship with the Treaty.
