Cost of Wellington Super City consultation

Nick Walker made this Official Information request to Minister of Local Government

Minister of Local Government did not have the information requested.

From: Nick Walker

Dear Minister of Local Government,

I would like to request information under the Official Information Act.

I'd like to know how much the consultation process, undertaken by the Local Government Commission into the proposed council amalgamation in the Wellington region, has cost.

The cost should include the total amount spent throughout the process of consulting different bodies leading up to the draft recommendation that nine councils amalgamate.

I'd like for the final cost figure to be broken down to show exactly where the money was spent.

I'd also like to know how many different parties were consulted during the process, and when that process officially begun and ended.

If possible, I'd like the budgeted cost of the entire process going forward - so how much it's expected to cost altogether.

Yours faithfully,

Nick Walker

Thank you for your email addressed to the Hon Paula Bennett. She
appreciates you taking the time to contact her.

All correspondence, including email, is entered into our mail tracking
process. Although e-mail delivery is instant, the time required to respond
to the high number received makes it impossible to provide an equally
instant response from the Minister.

Minister Bennett will read your views but a response beyond this
acknowledgement may not be sent.
