History

In November 1989, central government restructured local authorities throughout New Zealand. After substantial protests and legal challenges, Auckland City was merged with eight smaller local authorities to form a new Auckland City Council. The new city had double the population of the old and the amalgamation set the present-day boundaries of the city.


Further integration

Recently, connected with discussions about rates increases and plans to improve the public services of the region, which some consider substandard for a city of Auckland's size, there have been calls for further integration of local authorities in the Auckland area, mainly with the other cities of the Auckland conurbation, or even forming a unitary authority (that is, abolishing the city-based authorities and having only a regional council, as in Nelson).

A view of Nelson from the Centre of New Zealand Nelson stands on the southern corner of Tasman Bay, at the northern end of the South Island of New Zealand and is the administrative centre of the Nelson region. ...

  • Defenders of such a move point out that there are currently eight elected Councils (seven local councils and one regional council), with the associated bueraucratic efficiency problems.
  • Opponents tend to point to 'failed' mergers of other urban areas, and generally doubt claims of improved efficiency. They also perceive the proposed merger as being less democratic.

A Council is a group of people who usually possess some powers of governance. ...
