Thank you for your interest in our 2023 Napier City Council Representation Review.

Local authorities are required by the Local Electoral Act 2001 to take a fresh look at their representation arrangements at least once every six years. This is to ensure a local authority is structured to best serve the interests and needs of its community. 

For Napier, this means we need to consider: 
  • How many elected members should be on council? 
  • We currently have wards - should we keep them? If so, how many should our city have, what should their boundaries be, and what should they be named? 
  • Should we do away with wards and have at large councillors only? 
  • Should we have a mix of both ward councillors and at large councillors? 
  • Do we need community boards? 
Your views are important to help provide fair and effective representation for individuals and communities.
