Kaipara District Council (24 Hours) 0800 727 059

Office opening hours: 8.00am to 4.30pm Monday to Friday

Your Council

Kaipara is presently governed by a panel of three Commissioners, who were appointed by the Minister of Local Government in 2012 to replace the elected Mayor and Councillors.


The Commissioners

This followed a review of the Kaipara District Council’s performance because of governance and financial challenges. Their role is to perform and exercise the responsibilities, duties and powers of the Council.  During their term, the Commissioners’ focus has been on reducing Council’s debt and building confidence and trust in Council, and to build capability and capacity within the organisation.

In 2015, the Minister reappointed the Commissioners for a further year, to develop an exit plan so the organisation can transition to elected governance in October 2016.
