Representation Review

What is it all about?

Every six years the Council must review its representation arrangements to ensure that the people you elect represent your community effectively and fairly. Some minor changes are proposed in preparation for the 2019 local government elections. Hastings District Council is asking for your feedback on the following proposals:

  • That 14 Hastings District Councillors continue to be elected by ward as follows:
    • Flaxmere – 2 ward councillors
    • Hastings Havelock North Ward – 8 ward councillors
    • Heretaunga Ward – 2 ward councillors
    • Kahuraniki – 1 ward councillor
    • Mohaka – 1 ward councillor
  • That the boundaries of the Heretaunga, Kahuranaki and Hastings-Havelock North electoral wards are altered through the transfer of five meshblocks into Hastings Havelock North to reflect new residential developments on the outskirts of the urban areas.
  • That the Rural Community Board is retained as currently constituted, with a minor boundary change to reflect changes to Kahuraniki and Hastings-Havelock North ward.
