We are undertaking a review of how Tauranga City Council represents you, as individuals and communities.
Our current representation arrangements have been in place since 2010, and it’s time to review them. We need to ensure all our residents are fairly and effectively represented, in preparation for the next local body election.
We’re interested in your views on:
- the total number of councillors to be elected
- whether they're elected from wards or a mix of both wards and at large (city-wide)
- the boundaries of these wards
- if community boards should be established.

The next local body elections are scheduled for October 2022
On 9 February 2021, four commissioners replaced our mayor and councillors.
Local Government Minister Nanaia Mahuta says the commissioners will undertake Tauranga City Council’s governance responsibilities until the next local government elections in October 2022.
