Our new wards

For our upcoming election, Tauranga City Council will have a new representation arrangement. The Local Government Commission determined Tauranga residents will elect nine councillors plus a mayor. Eight of our nine councillors will be from general wards, and we will have one councillor representing the Māori ward.

The eight general wards are: Mauao/Mount Maunganui, Arataki, Pāpāmoa, Welcome Bay, Matua-Otūmoetai, Bethlehem, Tauriko and Te Papa.

The Māori ward, Te Awanui, will cover the entire city.

Candidate information evening

To help prepare people interested in standing as elected members, Council will host a free candidate information evening on Monday, 19 February 2024, from 4-8pm.

Joined by the Commissioners, a governance expert, and Tauranga City’s Electoral Officer, this will be an informative session to prepare would-be candidates for what they may expect if elected.

To register your interest, please fill in the form below.
