About the Council

The focus for us at the moment is working with our community on our exciting new Leading Edge Strategy, a vision for our community which concentrates on the work we have already started to make our district an innovative, progressive and culturally diverse place for the people who live here now and for those to come.

In January 2016 we welcomed our Chief Executive, Kym Fell, who is driving our vision for the Council.

Working here gives people the chance to make a difference to our district by working face-to-face with community groups, business people and iwi to develop the kind of place we all want to live in, while providing the key services our district needs.

We recruit for all sorts of roles, from planners to water specialists, librarians to animal management officers to deliver the wide range of services, projects and plans we’re working on. Our team is dedicated to making our community a better place to live, work and play for everyone, every day.
