HB Councils receive 3-Waters Review report


The formal receipt of the independent Three Waters Review report (prepared by Morrison Low and their partner WSP) to the five councils of Hawke’s Bay has begun, concluding an eighteen-month process of investigation and detailed analysis.

Concurrently, Government began a process to reform New Zealand’s drinking, waste and stormwater (three waters) regulations and the way three waters services are delivered, which has gained momentum in the past two months.

The timing of the Hawke’s Bay report coincides with the four Hawke’s Bay councils opting in to the first phase of discussions with Government on their proposed three waters service delivery reforms. The independent Review findings provide councils with the opportunity to engage with Government on solving the challenges that come from regionalisation of three waters services and their costs. These challenges will be faced by every region in the country participating in the three waters reform process.
