Thank you for your interest in our 2024 Napier City Council Representation Review.

Elections for councils are held every three years. This is when residents vote for mayors and councillors, and in some parts of New Zealand, for community board members. All councils are required to review their arrangements for representing their communities at least every six years.

We undertook a community survey on this matter in late 2023, including analysis to identify communities of interest in Napier. Council considered the community’s feedback and analysis, and based on this, we are now considering five potential options for Napier’s future city council representation arrangements.

We now want to know which one is your preferred option out of these five.

For more information please visit Council's website.

Your views are important to help provide fair and effective representation for individuals and communities.

After this survey, we’ll consider the community’s responses along with the analysis and then put forward one proposal for formal community consultation in July 2024. You will have the chance to write a submission and speak at a Council meeting about your views during this consultation if you wish.
