The Banks Peninsula Community Board represents almost 8,500 people and some 3,470 households. This is a brand new ward in 2016 and now it represents the entire Peninsula. Communities include Lyttelton, Diamond Harbour, Governors Bay, Port Levy, Little River, Akaroa and all the small settlements aroud the harbours.
The Board is supported by the Community Board Support Team which provides advice to the Board and ensures that the Board has the information it needs to assist it in making decisions. It arranges board meetings and produces agendas for those meetings. The Team also provides information to people who want to come and speak to the Board.
The Banks Peninsula Community Board meet twice every month. The main meeting is held on the Monday of the second week of each month, and this is when most of the community business is done. Then in the fourth week of each month, the Banks Peninsula Community Board hold a short meeting, mainly to confirm the meeting minutes so when the report goes to the Council it is up to date and reflects the community’s current concerns.
