Fairfax Media is planning to relocate editorial production of its regional newspapers in Australia to New Zealand.

Fairfax Editorial Services in New Zealand will do the sub-editing, page layout and headline writing for the Illawarra Mercury, Newcastle Herald and seven associated community titles.

The move, which is expected to affect 66 personnel in Australia, is part of the listed company's plans to improve efficiency.
