Submission on the Water Services Entities Bill, 20 July 2022
Currently three waters services in New Zealand are delivered by 67 local councils and are paid for by rates. Government is proposing that responsibility for providing these services is removed from local councils and transferred to large multi-regional entities. Until April 2023 the proposal was for four large multi-regional entities, this was revised to 10 and the reforms were renamed to the Affordable Water Reforms.
