Learn about Council's structure, and our vision and community outcomes
Waipa's unique cultural, historic and environmental heritage is important to us.
Check out our parks and reserves, libraries, museums and, swimming pools.
We have a 24-hour, district-wide service for all dog and stock control calls.
All building work requires approval by Council through a building consent.
We have developed a policy and structure with Māori to facilitate greater participation in our decision-making processes.
Our governance structure includes an Iwi Consultative Committee. The committee considers all significant matters, particularly in relation to the development of policy, and then makes appropriate recommendations for Council’s consideration.
Ngā Iwi Tōpū O Waipā (NITOW), translated as The Assembled People of Waipā, is a group that represents all hapū in the Waipā District. They meet monthly and consider resource consent applications. They also consider other issues that are bought directly to Iwi for consultation and consideration. NITOW also nominates members on to the Iwi Consultative Committee.
We further promote the decision-making capacity of Māori through the appointment of an Iwi representative to the Strategic Planning & Policy Committee and Regulatory Committee.
