As a collective of NFP peak bodies we can bring experience and expertise to the discussion on the Future for Local Government and local governance. What started out as a White Paper, you can now read our submission to the interim report and five key questions posed by the Review panel.
We see an opportunity for us all – central government, local government, tangata whenua and the community and voluntary sector – to work better together to support our communities and environment, in genuine partnership. Our vision is for a transformative agenda that will require new ways of working but will lead to more efficiency, effectiveness and connectedness.
Huge thanks goes to our members who contributed their time, and generously shared their experiences and expertise, and to Eva Hartshorn-Sanders for shaping our initial paper.
