Three Waters reset: Minister Simeon Brown says local councils will have flexibility under new scheme

The Government has unveiled their own legislation designed to replace Three Waters.

Prime Minster Chris Luxon confirmed Three Waters will be scrapped by February 23, as part of the Government's 100-day plan.

It will be replaced by two new bills by mid-2025 in order to phase in the alternative: Local Water Done Well.

Local Government Minister Simeon Brown says the new legislation will allow local council-controlled organisations to have more input.

"We'll be enabling that through legislation throughout this year, and that will ensure that councils are able to have their long-term investment in water infrastructure over the long term to get the infrastructure New Zealanders need."
