Local government elections will be held in October this year. If you’re passionate about this region and its future development, this is your opportunity to stand for Greater Wellington Regional Council and help shape our future.

At Greater Wellington, we deal with the issues that impact people’s lives every day. We work across many areas, but it all boils down to the same purpose: making this great region even greater.

Our focus for the next three years is on continuing to develop our region as a resilient, beautiful, opportunity-rich place to live and do business. To achieve this, we have significant programmes planned for public transport, flood protection, environmental enhancement, and water supply; all vital areas for economic development and quality of life. 

The chance to influence the policies of the regional council only comes around every three years. If you think you’ve got what it takes to make a difference, you should think about standing in this election.
