Council structures and governance

Council-controlled organisations

We have a strong track record in advising on the setting up of council-controlled organisations (CCOs), and reviewing their effectiveness. We can help you work through options for asset ownership and service delivery models.

Local government reorganisation

We can help you consider your options for reorganising local government structures, including in-depth analysis of proposals for amalgamation of local authorities or shared services. We can advise on options and the associated costs and benefits, based on our understanding of local government’s purpose and legislative framework, assessment of strategic issues and economic effects, as well as expert modelling of financial costs.

Governance structures

We can advise you on choosing and improving your governance and decision-making structures, as well as arrangements for planning and reporting to ensure decision-makers have the best information.
