All councils are required to review their representation arrangements (number of councillors, how they are elected etc.) at least every six years.
Nelson City Council reviewed its representation arrangements prior to the 2022 local authority elections.
As a result of appeals the Local Government Commission was required to determine the Nelson City Council's final proposal.
The council is required to undertake a further review of its representation arrangements prior to the 2028 local authority elections.
