From Morning Report, 6:44 am on 13 February 2024

Three Waters will be repealed by the end of next week, keeping water assets in councils' hands.

Local Government minister Simeon Brown says new legislation is coming, which will allow councils to deliver water infrastructure with more financial sustainability.

But Buller mayor Jamie Cleine says the move will cause problems for districts like his.

Cleine spoke to Corin Dann.
