Your councillors

Regional councillors are your community voice. Members of the current council were elected in October 2022, and will remain in office for three years to represent the eight regional council constituencies in Northland: Bay of Islands-Whangaroa General; Coastal Central General; Coastal South General; Far North General; Kaipara General; Mid North General; Te Raki Māori; Whangārei Central General.

Although elected by individual constituencies, once sworn in, regional councillors are committed to representing the best interests of the whole of Te Taitokerau.
