An amalgamation decision for Wellington has been delayed by two months.

The Local Government Commission had been expected to announce its recommendations for feedback next month, but chief executive Donald Riezebos says a decision won't be made by then. Instead, an update on progress could be expected in June.

The three Wairarapa district councils have applied to split from Greater Wellington and form a single unitary authority to look after both district and regional council responsibilities.

Meanwhile, Greater Wellington Regional Council has also applied for regional amalgamation of all nine councils into a single region-wide council.
