A memorandum of understanding between Port Macquarie-Hastings Council and Norfolk Island Regional Council has come to an end.
A federal government department sought Port Macquarie-Hastings Council's involvement in late 2016 to offer support to the newly established Norfolk Island Regional Council.
The memorandum of understanding, which dates back to March 2017, paved the way for the sharing of information and experience relevant to local government practices in NSW.
A report to Port Macquarie-Hastings Council's April meeting addressed the income and expenditure for administering and participating in the agreement.
There had been little impact on the council when it came to the income and expenditure implications for administrating the memorandum of understanding, the report said.
The council provided assistance with a number of requests that have not included any direct costs other than staff time, the report said.
The council performed $735 of development assessment work over the period of the agreement but this was funded by Norfolk Island Regional Council.
Requests for assistance were initially more frequent and interaction between the two councils reduced over time.
"The MOU was initially put in place to assist Norfolk Island Regional Council implement the requirements of the NSW Local Government Act however it would appear that this level of assistance is no longer required under a formal agreement," the council report said.
The council noted the memorandum of understanding had concluded.
