Please read below to see the information provided during the consultation period.
Kei te hia mōhio mātou ki ō whakaaro mō ngā whakaritenga manapori kāwanatanga mō Te Kaunihera ā-Rohe o Manawatū.
Inātata nei te whakapūmautanga o te tūtanga Māori, nō reira ka panonihia ngā whakaritenga mō te manapori kāwanatanga.
Nā runga i ngā whakawhitinga kōrero tōmua ki te hapori, kua arotakengia e te Kaunihera ngā whakaritenga manapori kāwanatanga, ā, kua waihangatia te kaupapa tōmua e whai ake nei.
We want to hear your thoughts on the proposed governance arrangements for Manawatū District Council.
The recent establishment of a Māori electoral ward means our current representation arrangements need to change.
Using feedback received during community early engagement, Council has reviewed its representation arrangements and come up with the following initial proposal.
Full proposal and ward maps
For the 2022 and 2025 local body elections, Manawatū District Council is proposing having a Mayor and eleven Councillors.
Mō ngā kōwhiringa pōti hei te 2022 me te 2025, e marohitia ana e Te Kaunihera ā-Rohe o Manawatū kia kotahi te Kahika, kia tekau mā tahi ngā Kaikaunihera.
Five would be elected from the Feilding Ward, five would be from the Rural Ward and one would be from the Māori Ward.
E rima ka pōtihia i te tūtanga o Kawakawa, e rima i te tūtanga Tuawhenua, kotahi i te tūtanga Māori.
Council is not proposing establishing any community boards. Instead, they will continue to liaise with the rural villages through their Community Committees.
Kāore te Kaunihera e marohi ana kia whakatūria he rūnanga hapori. Ka whakawhiti kōrero tonu mātou ki ngā Komiti Hapori o ngā kāinga tuawhenua.
