The Porirua City Coun­cil/greater Welling­ton Re­gional Coun­cilap­pointed gov­er­nance re­view panel will re­port to the two coun­cils by Novem­ber. Its rec­om­men­da­tion will form the ba­sis of their sub­mis­sions to the Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Com­mis­sion.

GWRC will bear $226,000 of the costs; PCC will bear $15,000, and pro­vide a sup­port staff mem­ber.

The terms of ref­er­ence re­quire the panel to as­sess lo­cal gov­ern­ment op­tions for the re­gion. Or­gan­i­sa­tions it pro­poses will em­bed en­hanced op­por­tu­ni­ties for com­mu­nity decision-mak­ing on lo­cal is­sues. It will con­sider ef­fi­ciency and in­te­grated plan­ning, in­clud­ing trans­port and land use. It will en­gage with the public and take any lessons from the Auck­land ex­pe­ri­ence.
