Self – not public – interest is behind a looming push by Northland’s District Councils for a restructure of the region’s local government, Regional Councillors claim.

Northland Regional Council Chairman Mark Farnsworth says he understands all three District Councils will meet separately this week to discuss a consultants’ report the District Councils commissioned on the topic.

Some were also clearly unhappy with the level of attention the Regional Council paid to their Councils’ environmental performance.

“I believe that shortly afterward at least two – and maybe all three – District Councils will release a final version of the report and call for public consultation on the formation of separate unitary authorities in their respective Districts.”

Mr Farnsworth says the Regional Council’s consistent position has been that it would be comfortable with a reform of local government in Northland – even if it led to the demise of the Regional Council in its current form - provided it was truly in the best interests of the region and was what the Northland public wanted.
