Mangakino – Pouakani ward
Ensuring Mangakino – Pouakani has a local voice
The Mangakino – Pouakani area has had a dedicated seat at council for a long time. This ensures that there is someone at the decision-making table who knows the Mangakino – Pouakani area.
We think this is important, because it’s a unique part of the District, with its distinct needs for Council services.
Judging solely according to population, this area wouldn’t get its own seat. This means this decision will be subject to a review by the Local Government Commission .
Feedback wanted - keep the Mangakino – Pouakani ward?
We think keeping the Mangakino – Pouakani ward to ensure this area has a seat at the Council table is vital.
But the Commission must review this decision, and will be really interested in whether this is something that is important to you.
Make sure you let us know if you want to keep it, or if you think it should change.
