Local Government Act 2002 - Implementation and Public Information

Department of Internal Affairs Information

The Department is currently working on material for general public release that describes the changes in local government as a result of the new Act and its impact for communities. Further information will be posted on this site as this project progresses.

Local Government KnowHow

LG KnowHow is a joint work programme by Local Government New Zealand (LGNZ), the Society of Local Government Managers (SOLGM), and the Department of Internal Affairs, to provide councils with the guidance, templates, "good practice" advice and ongoing training that will enable them to implement the new Local Government and Rating Acts successfully.
