Currently there are three Community Boards and four Community (Ward) Committees. Community Boards are elected by their community and Community Committees are established as committees of Council.
Community Committees and Boards are responsible for assessing the community requirements and advocating to council on behalf of that community.
The three options suggested are:
- Status Quo: Retain the current three Community Boards and four Community Committees
- Seven Community Boards: These boards would be elected by their community of interest
- Disestablish Community Boards
Fill out the survey which closes at 5pm on Tuesday 3 July. Copies of this survey can be collected from Council building, 30 Laings Road, Lower Hutt.
Once the survey has been completed, council will develop a draft proposal in August this year for the community to consider. The community then has one month to make submissions on this proposal.
