Please tell us why
The ward system was introduced some time ago to facilitate broader representation on Council. Initially there were five, then reduced to three and now only a meaningless (in terms of reason for being) two. More wards based on a community of interest enable citizens to identify with Councillors in their particular community when particular 'local' issues arise. I proposed 4 wards based on the rating sections NE, NW, SE, SW with 3 councillors in each ward. This should help in more representative councillors not just the rich and well known 'celebrities'.

3. The Council will hear verbal submissions on Tuesday 9 October 2018. Do you want to speak about your submission at this meeting?
