Ombudsman launches ‘urgent’ investigation into Wellington City Council
An independent public watchdog is investigating Wellington City Council for refusing to share information with ratepayers about the development of Shelly Bay.
Ombudsman Leo Donnelly said he was undertaking an “urgent” investigation into the council’s failure to respond to a Stuff request for information related to the $500 million development and its infrastructure, which will come at cost to city ratepayers.
The Ombudsman handles complaints and investigates the administrative conduct of state sector agencies.
