Environment Canterbury Review: Policy settings for future governance arrangements July 2015

Publication date:  July 2015
Publication reference number:  MFE 1205

On 1 March 2014, the Government began a review of the Canterbury Regional Council (known as Environment Canterbury or ECan) required under the Environment Canterbury (Temporary Commissioners and Improved Water Management) Act 2010.

The review is now complete, and the Government is preparing legislation to establish a mixed-model governance structure (the mixed-model) for ECan for the 2016 local authority elections.

This report contains the detailed policy settings for how the mixed-model is intended to be set up and operate. Some of the details in this report may be subject to change to best give effect to the overall policy intent.
