Rural Community BoardTe Poari Hapori Tuawhenua

Rural Community Board Group shotThe Rural Community Board is an important governance group at Hastings District Council, there to represent those in Hastings’ rural communities.

The board was first formed in 1992, not long after the amalgamation in 1989 of Havelock North and eight of the 10 old ridings (areas) of the former Hawke’s Bay County Council, as well as part of Taupo County to form the Hastings District Council.

Made up of six members, four are elected by the rural community of Hastings and two are council appointees.

They represent the four rural subdivisions of Maraekakaho, Kaweka, Poukawa and Tutira.

As the voice of the rural community, the Board looks after rural matters for which the council is responsible; such as rural roads, berms and culverts, bridge repairs and maintenance and rural halls.

The Rural Community Board  is involved in setting the vision for the rural community as part of the Long Term Plan and Annual Plan  and hears submissions on rural subjects and also considers and gives guidance on the setting of rates.

Members of the public attend public sections of the Rural Community Board meetings. Find out more about their meeting schedule here.
