Governance Structures and Delegations
This section outlines the committee structure adopted by Council and appointments of Councillors to outside organisations. Also included is information on the Triennial Agreement with other Councils in the Wellington region.
The Council's current standing committee structure was adopted at the second part of the inaugural meeting on 27 October 2010. The details of the committee structure are published on the Committee Membership and Terms of Reference page. This committee structure was in effect until 30 June 2011. From 1 July 2011, a new committee structure took effect, which saw the two standing committees replaced by a single committee of the whole.
Further details on these committees, including their terms of reference, membership and meeting arrangements can be obtained on the Committee Membership and Terms of Reference page.
Council may, from time to time, appoint elected members as Council representatives to outside organisations or groups. These groups/committees are termed "Council Organisations" or "Council Controlled Organisations" by the Local Government Act 2002. Details of such appointments can be found on the Council Organisations page.
