Submissions have opened on the Local Government Act 2002 Amendment Bill (No 2), and close on 28 July 2016.

The Bill amends the Local Government Act 2002 to provide for a broader range of functions to be transferred between local authorities, joint governance arrangements for areas of common or shared interest, and greater use of joint council-controlled organisations (CCOs) (including water services CCOs and transport CCOs) for providing services.
