Community Boards are your local representatives. Board members are elected every three years at the local body elections. They work with your community to help meet local needs, goals and aspirations.
We have seven Community Boards, representing our 16 Christchurch wards. Each Community Board has a three-year plan outlining its priorities and guiding its decisions.
The Community Boards' main roles are to:
- Represent and act as an advocate for the interests of its community
- Consider and report on all matters referred to it by the Council, or any matter of interest to the board
- Maintain an overview of services provided by the Council within the community
- Prepare an annual submission to the Council for expenditure within the community
- Communicate with community organisations and special interest groups within the community
