Council urges slower, more considered approach to Three Waters Reform

Darren Petry from Taupo District Council

After looking carefully at the Government’s controversial Three Waters proposal and surveying its community, Taupō District Council is requesting an immediate stop to the Three Waters Reform programme.

In its submission to the Government unanimously approved today by the mayor and councillors, Council stressed the need for the reform to pause, and be linked with the Resource Management Act and Future for Local Government reviews.

Mayor David Trewavas said while Council agreed that some change in the Three Waters area was necessary in the future due to rising costs and environmental standards, it was not convinced, based on the information provided to Council to date, that the Government’s proposals were the right outcome for the Taupō District.
