Representation arrangements for Greater Wellington Regional Council

Back to Have Your Say

This Consultation is currently open.

It opened 11:30pm 08 May 2018
and will close 11:30pm 30 May 2018
(4 days away from closing)

What's this all about?

Later this year, the Greater Wellington Regional Council (Greater Wellington) will start its formal representation review.

A representation review is a process for Greater Wellington to review the number of councillors it has, and to determine the areas that councillors represent within the Wellington Region.

Your feedback will assist Greater Wellington in planning our initial representation proposal for public consultation. This will take place later in 2018.
