Representation Review – Pre-Consultation - Closed

April 17, 2018

Note: This Public Notice is out of date, and is retained for archival purposes only.

Council is required to undertake a representation review every 6 years. This review considers among other things, the ward structure, and whether to retain community boards.

To assist Council in developing its proposal, pre-consultation is being undertaken on the following issues:

  • Whether the Ratana Community wishes to retain the Ratana Community Board.
  • Whether the Taihape Ward wishes to retain the Taihape Community Board.
  • Two ward structure options for the community to choose from:

1. Amended Status Quo – 5 wards

2. A 3 ward structure – north, central, south

To understand the community’s views, Council has developed a quick survey. It would be very valuable for Council in further developing its preferred representation option if you were to complete the survey. It is anonymous and should only take a couple of minutes to complete.
