Ward changes proposed

Changes to the boundaries of Auckland Council’s wards are being considered and public consultation is open now.

The six-yearly boundary review – Auckland’s first following amalgamation – is designed to ensure the public interest is fairly represented as ward populations grow or change over time.

The number of councillors will stay at 20, plus the Mayor.

The council may also review whether local board members are elected by subdivisions or across the whole of a local board area.

Areas most affected by the proposed changes are the Waitemata and Gulf Ward and its surrounding wards, Manukau Ward and Rodney subdivisions.

Consultation is open until September 11.

The council’s final proposal will be decided on October 18 and publicly notified for objections to the Local Government Commission. Info: aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/haveyoursay.
