2.4.1 Auckland Council powers and responsibilities


  1. In addition to the powers, responsibilities and duties set out in the Local Government Act, the Local Government (Auckland Council) Act sets out the decision-making responsibilities of the governing body and local boards and the unique governance structure. Under the scheme:

    • Both the governing body and local boards are responsible and democratically accountable for the decision-making of Auckland Council.

    • Whether responsibility for making any particular decision rests with the governing body or one or more of the local boards depends on the nature of the decision being made [1].
