Draft SOLGM Submission - Urban Development Authorities Document

The MBIE led discussion document on the proposed Urban Development Authority legislation is open for feedback.

SOLGM has prepared a draft submission. It is short, and supports the proposed legislation in principle. Our main concerns lie in the powers to override and in the ability of these agencies to attract capability. We were aware of the LGNZ submission and unless otherwise stated, we concur with that document

The proposals in our draft are open for feedback. They are not, and may never be, SOLGM policy.

The deadline for comments will be 4.00pm on 9 May 2017 and should be addressed to Raymond Horan at raymond.horan@solgm.org.nz .

The submission can be found HERE
