Representation Review for the 2019 Elections

Final Proposal

Council is required to undertake a representation review once every six years. The review is important for ensuring effective and fair representation of the District’s communities.

Having considered all of the submissions, the Council resolved to adopt its initial proposal as the Council’s final proposal, subject to the following amendment:

  • the boundaries for the Taihape Community Board be those for the proposed Northern Ward (rather than the boundaries of the current Taihape Ward).

The Council considers that this boundary change is appropriate for the following reason:

  • it is logical that the proposed Northern Ward boundaries are those for the Taihape Community Board as the Northern Ward is the basis for electing the Ward Councillors who would be part of the membership of the Taihape Community Board.
