|Local Government New Zealand opposes many of the proposals in the bill.
There is no evidence that a substantive problem exists that requires legislative change. The examples by the Government to justify the proposed change are not examples of a failure of the well-beings.
LGNZ does support benchmarking but the concern is that central government imposed benchmarks are tied to a new ministerial intervention regime. By linking benchmarks to a new ministerial intervention regime they become in effect ‘triggers’ for intervention.”
