We are committed to seeking out a diverse range of views as we develop our recommendations about the future for the local government.

We’re seeking ideas about how local governance and democracy can be improved.

Alongside our research and policy work, the voices and experiences we hear throughout the engagement phase are essential in shaping the Review. 

We welcome all submissions and feedback through until 30 June 2022 for consideration into the draft report.

How do you think Local Government can provide wellbeing and prosperity to New Zealand communities? How can Local Government better uphold the values of Te Tiriti o Waitangi? How should Local Government be funded?

Have your say by taking the survey below, or if you have questions or queries about how you, your community, or your organisation can be involved, please contact us.

Complete the survey by 30 June 2022 to help shape our draft report and recommendations to the Minister of Local Government.
