What do we stand for?
Everything we do, no matter how big or small, we do to keep our environment healthy, our economy strong and our communities thriving. But we know that people working together is key to the success of our rohe. That’s why we’re committed to working in partnership with iwi and many others in our communities.
What does the Waikato Regional Council stand for?
Our iwi relationships
From the tip of the Coromandel Peninsula to the slopes of Ruapehu, the Waikato is the beating heart of the North Island. Collectively, we’re more than 460,000 strong, living in one city and 10 districts.
The council, made up of 14 elected councillors, is the governing body for Waikato Regional Council. The chair and deputy chair are appointed by the council when it takes office.
Councillors meet monthly (or as required) in committees and subcommittees to look closely at the issues and make decisions on or recommendations to the council. The full council generally meets on the last Thursday of each month to consider recommendations and make decisions on a wide variety of activities and policies.
