Ombudsman releases report on LGOIMA practice at Auckland Council

Issue date:

Chief Ombudsman Peter Boshier has published his report into Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act (LGOIMA) compliance and practice at New Zealand's largest local authority.

The report finds that Auckland Council has a strong culture of openness, led by the Chief Executive, who demonstrates a commitment to LGOIMA and transparency more generally.

Auckland Council has accepted all but one of the Chief Ombudsman's suggested actions, and has developed a plan to implement these over the next 18 months.
