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.
