Representation arrangements for Greater Wellington Regional Council

Submissions on representation arrangements closed 26 September 2018.

What's this all about?

Later this year, the Greater Wellington Regional Council (Greater Wellington) will start its formal representation review.

A representation review is a process for Greater Wellington to review the number of councillors it has, and to determine the areas that councillors represent within the Wellington Region.

Your feedback will assist Greater Wellington in planning our initial representation proposal for public consultation. This will take place later in 2018.

This survey will be open until 5pm on Tuesday 5th of June, so make sure to tell us what you think by then!
