Cambridge voters will choose five – not four – Waipa District Councillors at the 2019 local body elections.
The extra Councillor has been added to comply with the Local Electoral Act.
Cambridge voters will also be asked to vote for an extra member for the Cambridge Community Board, making six board members in total. One member will continue to represent Maungatautari.
The change means there will be five Cambridge ward councillors and four Te Awamutu ward councillors after the October 2019 election. Two rural wards – Kakepuku and Maungatautari – will continue to have one representative each. The third rural ward, Pirongia, will continue to be represented by two elected members.
Legally, all councils in New Zealand must review their make-up every six years to ensure representation is fair and effective. Waipā’s review showed that, because of population growth, the Council needed one more Cambridge councillor and an additional community board member to comply with the law.
No appeals against the proposal were received.
