We’re proposing to change how New Plymouth District Council represents our communities in time for the 2022 triennial local election.
Feedback Closes: Saturday 2 October, 2021.
We’re proposing to keep the same number of councillors (14), but changing where they’re elected from.
In our proposal:
Nine councillors will be elected from four wards.
Five councillors will be elected at large by all electors from the whole of the New Plymouth District.
We’re proposing to keep the Waitara, Clifton, Inglewood and Kaitake Community Boards. There are some minor boundary realignments for all but the Clifton Community Board.
In addition we’re proposing to establish a Puketapu Community Board for the Bell Block residential area.
All community boards would have four elected members and one councillor appointee.
This consultation is only considering the total number of elected members and the names, boundaries and number of members for each ward. The electoral system (Single Transferable Vote), the establishment of a Māori Ward and the number of members elected in the Māori Ward are outside the scope of this consultation.
There’s a submission form attached to the consultation document, but our preference is for you to provide your feedback through the online submission form below:
