A local board for Golden Bay? – Local Government Commission releases consultation document

06 Jul 2020

The Local Government Commission has released a consultation document on the option of establishing a Golden Bay local board. If adopted, the local board would replace the existing Golden Bay Community Board.

The consultation document outlines: the difference between a local board and a community board; what a Golden Bay local board might be responsible for; and what a Golden Bay local board might cost.

The Commission is now seeking submissions from both Golden Bay and from elsewhere in Tasman District on the option of establishing one or more local boards in the district. Submissions close on Friday, 14 August 2020.

Copies of the Golden Bay local board consultation document have been delivered to mailboxes across Tasman District. Further copies are available at Tasman District Council and libraries and service centres across the district. It may also be downloaded from the Commission’s website.

Further information can be obtained from the Commission by:
