Hawke’s Bay Three Waters Review
Te Arotakenga o Ngā Wai e Toru o Te Matau-a-Māui

Since early 2019, Central Hawke’s Bay District Council, Hastings District Council, Napier City Council, Wairoa District Council and Hawke’s Bay Regional Council have been working together to review the current and potential service delivery options for drinking, waste and stormwater (three waters) for all of Hawke’s Bay. The project aligns with the five councils’ strategic priority for the 2019-22 triennium; water safety, security and planning.

Our independent Review is now complete and has been formally delivered to councils, and made public. To find out more about the Hawke’s Bay Three Waters Review you can read the quick guide, watch the videos, or read the report in full and FAQs.

In July 2020, Government announced an opt in partnership approach to reform three waters service delivery arrangements, giving Hawke’s Bay councils access to $50 million dollars of three waters funding. Central Hawke’s Bay District Council, Hastings District Council, Napier City Council, Wairoa District Council have signed up to phase one of the government process.  

The work we have done together to understand and assess the issues and options for the future of three waters service delivery across our region means Hawke’s Bay’s councils are in a unique leadership position going into the Government’s three waters service delivery reform process. We have the opportunity to put on the table with Government our findings and in particular the key challenges with regionalisation that will require Government support and investment to address.
