Review crosses boundaries
By DENISE PIPER
Northland s boundaries could get
a major shake-up if the Northland
Regional Council has its way.
The council wants better rep-
resentation from all areas, scrap-
ping the present model based on
the three districts in favour of
eight smaller constituencies.
The number of regional council-
lors would increase by one, to nine
-- but the cost of that extra coun-
cillor would be covered within
councillors existing $388,840 a

Councillor Graeme Ramsay
says the proposal is really good in
general, identifying communities
of interest in Northland and
grouping them together.
But councillor Ian Walker says
the proposal does nothing to
assure good governance and some
areas might be hamstrung by a
lack of suitable people for council.

available online at nrc.govt.nz or
