6.2.4 Regulatory activities that have been delegated to local boards


  1. While the governing body cannot allocate regulatory decisions, it can choose to delegate its regulatory decision-making responsibilities to local boards. In deciding whether to make a delegation, the governing body must weigh the benefits of reflecting local circumstances and preferences (through a delegation) against the importance and benefits of using a single approach [1].

  2. Where a power is delegated, the governing body retains ultimate accountability for that activity. This is different from an allocated decision-making power where the local board has full accountability for the activities allocated to it.

  3. Local boards can also be delegated decision-making responsibilities from Auckland Transport. There are currently no transport delegations in place.
