Auckland mayor Len Brown has been given a copy of the draft report of an independent review of whether he made any improper use of council resources during his affair with Bevan Chuang.

A council representative confirmed today that, as stated in the review's terms of reference, the report had been given to Brown for him to provide feedback.

Once that feedback had been received, the review could be released publicly.

Council chief executive Doug McKay announced the Ernst & Young review in October.

It was to examine:

- Any use of council resources within the Office of the Mayor, in respect of the mayor's relationship with Chuang that contravened council policies (for example, payments and procurement)

- Any improper preferential treatment in relation to Chuang's engagement as an employee, contractor or advisor within the Auckland Council Group; and

- Any other issues the reviewers or chief executive considered related to or arose out of those matters.

When the investigation was announced it was expected to take a maximum of four weeks.

Brown's affair with Chuang, 32, was revealed after he won the mayoralty in October.

Chuang unsuccessfully stood for the Albert-Eden Local Board in the elections, and before that served on Auckland Council's Ethnic Peoples Advisory Panel.
