Representation review 2021 - Arotake Whakaahuatanga

Appeals on our representation review closed at 4pm Friday, 26 November 2021.

The final proposal – Te Whakatakoto Whakamutunga

We’re doing a representation review to look at how Northland communities are represented at the council table.

Following a one-month public consultation on our Initial Proposal, we received 33 submissions on our proposed representation arrangements.

We have carefully considered the feedback received and decided not to make any further changes.

This document sets out our Final Proposal, which remains the same as our Initial Proposal

There was a one-month appeal period on our Final Proposal, where previous submitters could lodge an appeal. We received three appeals - head to our online consultation portal to view the appeals.
