​Kia ora 

What consultation did the Council undertake before joining the "Communities 4 Local Democracy" organisation?  

I refer you to section 56 of the Local Government Act 2002 and the definitions in section 6 including the definition of "council-controlled organisation", "entity" and "shareholder". 

This is an official information request. 

Ngā mihi,
Josh Marshall


​Our Council has been instrumental in the forming and running of the Communities 4 Local Democracy group since its inception, with our Mayor being the Chair of the group.

Our Council was unanimous in its desire to want to join Communities 4 Local Democracy following extensive interaction with our community back in September last year. 

During a number of public meetings, and 2419 submissions made to Council it was clear that at least 94% of the community opposed the Three Waters Proposal.
