Representation Review

Representation Arrangement Review 2012

Bay of Plenty Regional Council undertook a representation arrangement review in 2012. It commenced the review process by conducting two workshops in April and May 2012 on representation options. On 28 June 2012 Council resolved its initial representation proposal, and in accordance with the Local Electoral Act 2001 (LEA) this initial proposal was part of a public consultation process, and called for submissions.  

Four submissions were recieved. After considering the submissions received, the Council adopted its initial proposal as its final representation proposal, and sought any appeals to its final proposal.  

No appeals were recieved. However, as the population to member ratios of the Rotorua and Eastern Bay of Plenty General Constituencies did not comply with the requirements of section 19V(2) of the LEA, Council was required by section 19V(4) of the Act to refer its proposal to the Local Government Commission (LGC) for determination.

On 20 December 2012, the LGC issued its determination that upheld the Council's final proposal.
