Division over scrapping of supercity proposal

From Te Manu Korihi, 5:50 pm on 10 June 2015

While some Māori leaders and mayors are celebrating the scrapping of a supercity proposal for the Wellington region, Porirua's mayor says it's a missed opportunity. Plans to join all nine councils in the Greater Wellington Region into one authority were rejected by the Local Government Commission yesterday because there was little support for one greater council for the entire region.
