The new feature of Māori wards on our electoral map has triggered a review of how general votes are represented by Council.
The year-long process begins with an anonymous survey about how well (or not well) different communities fit in to their wards. How well do you fit yours?
Public feedback may change the number of wards or the number of Councillors. Learn more and participate at the 'Read more' link.

A Message from the Pukenui Rangers ..
"Chris Humfrey (Kiwi) had done the work for us and removed his transmitter of his own accord which left us thinking that was the end of it. It turned out however that he was huddled up in a nearby burrow with Kama, neither being too impressed about being disturbed! They were pulled out, weighed, and put back in the burrow to continue doing their thing, an early sign of breeding activity I reckon!"
Thanks especially to Carl Dowd from Pataua North Landcare who has been helping out immensely in the forest in tracking kiwi and health checks. Shout out to Pukenui hard working rangers Ben Lovell and Bevan Cramp and Kiwi Namesake the real Chris Humfrey (human)
