Employer Bulletin | 19 February

Issue date

The Three Waters legislation, a subject of intense debate, has been decisively repealed by the Coalition Government under the leadership of Local Government Minister Simeon Brown. This move marks a step towards implementing the government's Local Water Done Well policy, a key part of the Government’s 100-day plan. The repeal is aimed at returning ownership and control of water assets to local councils, a move supported by the majority of councils across Aotearoa New Zealand.
