About our CommitteesNgā kōrero o ngā Komiti. 

Council has a committee structure in place which supports its legislative responsibilities – find out more about the committees for 2019-2022 below.

Committees of Council 

Council has a number of Committees which help support meeting its purpose and responsibilities under the Local Government Act 2002:

  • to enable democratic local decision-making and action by, and on behalf of, communities; and
  • to promote the social, economic, environmental, and cultural well-being of communities in the present and for the future.

Council must also take account of the Treaty of Waitangi, and facilitate participation by Māori in decision-making processes. We must identify and appropriately manage multiple forms of risk, and undertake significant planning processes under both the Local Government Act 2002 and Resource Management Act 1991.

It must have in place a variety of large and overarching plans, including the District Plan, Long Term Plan and Annual Plans, and must report against what is has achieved from the plans each year.

A District Licensing Committee is also required under the Sale and Supply of Alcohol 2012.

There is also Council representation on a number of other external committee and groups.
