All local councils are required to carry out a representation review at least every six years. This is to ensure residents have fair and effective representation at local elections.

Selwyn District Council last undertook a review in 2015 , in preparation for the 2016 elections. The current review will apply for the 2022 and 2025 local elections.

Below is the outline of the review steps:

Representation review 2021 timeline

July 2021: We are currently consulting on four preliminary options for how our current representation arrangements could change. The options include changing ward boundaries, the number of wards and how many councillors represent your ward. We are also seeking feedback on whether there should be community boards. See our engagement website Your Say Selwyn for more information.

Consultation is open until 5pm, Friday 30 July.
