The Waimakariri District is divided into four wards, with each ward
being represented by a community board or ward advisory board. There are
community boards for Kaiapoi, Rangiora and Woodend-Ashley, and a ward
advisory board for Oxford-Eyre.
Each board has six elected members voted in every three years,
together with the Councillors appointed from each of the appropriate
wards. The Oxford-Eyre ward has a ward advisory board which is appointed
by the Council, following a public nomination process.
All residents of the District are welcome to contact members of the boards to discuss Council and community-related matters.
role of a community board is to represent and promote the interests of
its community. Each community board is comprised of six elected members
plus the current Councillors for that ward.
Ward Advisory Board
ward advisory board differs from a community board in that the members
are appointed by the Council, instead of being elected by the District's
residents. A ward advisory board doesn't have the same legal and
independent status as a community board.
The Oxford-Eyre Ward Advisory Board is comprised of nine Council-appointed members plus the two Oxford-Eyre ward Councillors.
