Local Government Law Reform (No. 3) Bill


The Local Government Law Reform (No. 3) Bill was split into seven separate bills; each amending one of the seven Acts mentioned in the Bill. These new Acts will are (see links to electronic copies of these Acts above):

  • Chatham Islands Council Amendment Act 2004
  • Dog Control Amendment Act 2004
  • Local Electoral Amendment Act 2004
  • Local Government Act 2002 Amendment Act 2004
  • Local Government Act 1974 Amendment Act 2004
  • Local Government Official Information and Meetings Amendment Act 2004
  • Local Government (Rating) Amendment Act 2004

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.

One significant amendment was made to the Bill, by a Supplementary Order Paper, during Parliaments committee stage. This amendment enables the future integration of the Auckland Regional Transport Network Limited (ARTNL) into the new transport governance arrangements.
