For the 2022–25 Triennium (that is, the term of office) the Mayor exercised her powers under section 41A of the Local Government Act 2002 and established Committees, appointed Chairs to those Committees, and set their terms of reference, and membership. The Council then approved delegation for the Committee, Subcommittee and Community Boards. All this information is set out in the Governance structure and delegations 2022–25[PDF 957 KB], which were adopted by Council on 24 November 2022. The document also details the appointments of elected members to a range of Joint Committees and external organisations.
The Local Governance Statement is a collection of information about the processes through which the Council engages with its community, how the Council makes decisions, and how the community can influence those decisions.
A Governance Statement must be published by the Local Authority within six months of the date of the Local Elections, that is, by 8 April 2023. A new statement is being drafted and will be made available once Council has formally adopted it.
Wellington regional triennial agreement
The Wellington Regional Triennial Agreement[PDF 215 KB] is drafted to meet the requirements of Section 15 of the Local Government Act 2002.
The Local Government Act 2002 is intended to provide the necessary flexibility for Councils to work cooperatively and collaboratively together and with other public bodies to advance community goals and to improve community wellbeing.
The scope of the agreement includes the current cooperative and collaborative projects already in place in the Wellington region and work being undertaken to establish structures and protocols associated with specific issues, and aims to build on these.
