More Community Boards on the Way

If you haven’t already picked it up, two more community boards will join the Kaiapoi Community Board at the end of the year: Rangiora and Woodend-Ashley.  These will replace the current Ward Advisory Boards for those two wards.  Community Boards are directly elected by the voters, Ward Advisory Boards appointed by the Council following a public selection process.

So – Rangiora and Woodend-Ashley voters will have something else to vote for this October.  Note that the Rangiora Ward will include much more of Fernside than at present.

The public consultation process last year unearthed no desire for change in the Oxford-Eyre Ward, so it will keep its Ward Advisory Board.

The powers of the two types of Board, as currently delegated by the Council are much the same.  Community Boards cost a lot more because the members are paid.

The membership of the current Ward Advisory Boards can be found in one of the pages on the right.
