Consultation

Local Government (Community Well-being) Amendment Bill

NZNO seeks your feedback on this Bill which aims to reinstate the promotion of social, economic, environmental and cultural well-being of communities to the statutory role of local government, and restore  territorial authorities’ ability to collect development contributions for community facilities, such as libraries, sports grounds and swimming pools resulting from developments. Please consider how these changes to local government could make a difference to health outcomes and to local planning for eg, population growth, an ageing society, rising rates of obesity, social inequalities and climate change.

Please find the bill here: http://www.legislation.govt.nz/bill/government/2018/0048/latest/d56e2.html

Send feedback to marilynh@nzno.org.nz by 18 May 2018.
