Wairarapa - stronger as one

Proposal for a single Wairarapa District Council

Public vote 20 Nov - 12 Dec 2017

  Wairarapa has a unique opportunity to move to leadership with a unified economic purpose, planning and
direction that will drive long-term growth in our economy.

In a postal vote, Wairarapa people will choose whether to form a single leadership authority or remain with
the three separate district councils we have now.

One Council - 3 reasons why

  1. One strong voice

    A more effective, stronger and united voice for Wairarapa in regional and national conversations. Greater influence on Regional Council and Government agencies.

  2. One strategy for economic growth

    Wairarapa is pretty doing well – for the moment at least. But what will the next 20-30 years bring? We need to work together as one to strengthen our competitive advantage nationally and globally.

  3. Less red tape.  More consistent.  More efficient.

  Easier to do business across whole Wairarapa with one set of rules and policies for business, cultural, sporting and community groups.
  Streamlined cooperation and collaboration for the whole region.

    A new Wairarapa District Council would have:

  • 7 wards
  • 1 Mayor, 12 councillors
  • 5 local Community Boards – Martinborough, Featherston, Greytown, Carterton, Masterton
  • A committee representing Māori
  • A committee representing Rural people
  • A Wairarapa Committee for GWRC (recently established)
