Today the DIA released 4 evidence based reports in relation to the three waters reform, building the case for change.

These can be found at https://www.dia.govt.nz/Three-waters-review

What does this mean for our council and community?

We’re still waiting for release of the Cabinet paper which will decide how many entities it’s going to be, and we are hoping it will also provide details on the debt structure and how that may impact on council.

There will be a public consultation prior to the opt-out decision expected by the end of the year, so we can consider the community’s views before making any final decisions.
