There's lots of different possibilities for our representation arrangements in Tairāwhiti.
Now's your chance to help shape our district’s democratic system. We want to hear your thoughts on what should be in the initial representation review proposal.
We're introducing Māori wards which will change the areas that councillors represent. This is something we all need to contribute to, to make sure our region’s representation is fair and equitable. Communities change and people move over time, and this is why there's a legislative requirement to review our representation at least every 6 years.
Your feedback will help us create a proposal for Māori and General wards.
You can read the background information including questions and answers About the Representation Review
Feedback closed 8am Monday 21 June.
Once we get all the feedback, then we'll create an initial proposal and we’ll ask you for your feedback again.
