Our Council

The Council is constituted under the Local Government Act 2002. The purpose of local government is stated in section 10(1) as:

Crown Commission

On 9 February 2021, a Crown Commission appointed by the Minister of Local Government took over all of the council’s governance responsibilities, initially for a term until October 2022.

Local Government Minister Nanaia Mahuta has reappointed the existing four commissioners for a new commission term running from 26 April 2022 through until July 2024, when the next local election for Tauranga City Council will be held. 

The information below relates to governance of the council prior to the appointment of commissioners.

  • to enable democratic local decision-making and action by, and on behalf of, communities; and
  • to promote the social, economic, environmental and cultural well-being of communities in the present and for the future.

The Local Governance Statement (required by the Local Government Act 2002) is the overarching document explaining the organisation and structure, key Acts and legislative requirements under which the Council operates.
