Community Boards and Committees

Community Boards
Community Boards are constituted under Section 49 of the Local Government Act 2002 to:

  • Represent and act as an advocate for the interests of their community
  • Consider and report any matter referred to it by the Council on any issues of interest or concern to the community board
  • Make an annual submission to Council on expenditure in the community
  • Maintain an overview of services provided by the Council within the community
  • Communicate with community organisations and special interest groups in the community
  • Undertake any other responsibilities delegated by the Council (currently the Council has not delegated any such responsibilities)

Community Committees
The role of a Community Committee is similar to that of a Community Board, but it carries out its functions under contract to the Council rather than through these being prescribed by statute. The contracts reflect the following services to Council:

  • Represent and act as an advocate for the interests of their community
  • Consider and report any matter referred to it by the Council on any issues of interest or concern to the community board
  • Make an annual submission to Council on expenditure in the community
  • Maintain an overview of services provided by the Council within the community
  • Communicate with community organisations and special interest groups in the community
  • Undertake any other responsibilities delegated by the Council (currently the Council has not delegated any such responsibilities)
