Submission to the Office of Local Government Review of Joint Organisations Emerging Directions Paper

26 Oct 2015

The Water Directorate made a submission on 16 October to the OLG Review of Joint Organisations Emerging  Directions Paper.

The Water Directorate's submission has identified a number of areas where the Joint Organisations Emerging Directions Paper can be improved. The submission included the following three recommendations:

  • Joint Organisations should be enabled to undertake regional water and sewerage planning where tangible benefits can be demonstrated.
  • Joint Organisations should be enabled to provide regional water and sewerage services where this is the most appropriate approach given the local conditions.
  • The on-going role of existing water corporations, water and/or sewerage county councils, water utility mandatory alliances and water utility informal alliances should be clarified in the Joint Organisations Working Framework Paper.
