Local Government Law Reform (No. 3) Bill
Most of the amendments contained in these bills were technical in nature. A Supplementary Order Paper made one significant amendment to the Local Government Act 2002, during Parliament's committee stage. This enables local authorities to provide in their standing orders for a casting vote, in any circumstances where there is an equality of votes. This amendment will apply to both council and council committee meetings.
Local Government (Auckland) Amendment Act
The Local Government (Auckland) Amendment Act 2004 gives effect to the Government’s transport governance, regulatory and funding proposals for Auckland; which it announced on 12 December 2003. It establishes two new entities as subsidiaries of the Auckland Regional Council – the Auckland Regional Transport Authority and Auckland Regional Holdings. The Auckland Regional Transport Authority will plan, fund and develop Auckland transport infrastructure with Transfund and Transit. Auckland Regional Holdings will manage assets and investments on behalf of the Auckland Regional Council – initially including those assets that are transferred from Infrastructure Auckland.
