Governance

1.1 Governance, information and engagement

Pārongo, kōrerorero whānui me ngā mahi whakataunga

We want to involve people and maintain their confidence in our decision-making.

What we do

Our decisions shape our city – today and into the future. These decisions have to reflect the services that matter to the community and how much they are willing to pay for them, so we do a range of things to ensure people are well informed and can contribute meaningfully to Council decision-making processes. The Local Government Act 2002 sets out the decision-making, planning and accountability procedures expected of councils.

Other legislation requires us to keep a record of our work and provide access to the information we hold. Our City Archives team looks after and makes available a huge range of primary information about the city’s history.

We also operate a 24/7 contact centre so we can provide people with information and respond to their requests related to our services.
