Our governing body of 13 elected councillors, representing six constituencies, focuses on the big picture and on region-wide strategic decisions.

The Council is responsible for developing policies that direct our activities. Various Acts of Parliament, such as the Local Government Act and the Resource Management Act, state what activities the Council should, or may, be involved with. It is the Councillors' role to decide how the activities should be carried out.
