Big changes are happening in local government

The government is making big changes to local government. These have the potential to affect your working lives and the communities you live in.

- The Local Government Act 2002 Amendment Act has been passed. It requires councils to focus only on certain issues, cap spending and borrowing, limit staff numbers and pay and make it easier to go ahead with amalgamations and shared services.

- There is another Amendment Bill in Parliament which will make further changes.

- The process of Council amalgamations has started in some regions.

There are also a number of government working groups and reports looking at local government.
