The Hutt Valley's two councils will join forces to ask locals about the future shape of local government.

A website will offer residents the chance to offer feedback on three options; a enhanced status quo model, a united Hutt Valley Council, or a single council for the Wellington region.

The consultation period will start on May 28, and run till June 14.

In a joint statement, Lower Hutt Mayor Ray Wallace and Upper Hutt Mayor Wayne Guppy said the feedback would shape the submission eventually made to the Local Government Commission.

''This is a time for our communities to stand together with a shared voice to ensure we have a say in our own future,'' they said.

Both councils will also run a second Colmar Brunton telephone survey on the issue.
