Drainage advisory subcommittees

Drainage subcommittee members are the link between drainage ratepayers and the regional council. They oversee the work programmes for the council’s drainage service in their relevant areas and make sure local needs and interests are taken into consideration.

There are four drainage advisory subcommittees – Aka Aka Otaua, Franklin Waikato, Waikato Central and Thames Valley. Each comprises landowner representatives and Waikato regional councillors who ensure there is detailed community input into the land drainage programmes for each area.

Recommendations from the drainage advisory subcommittees are reported back through the council’s Integrated Catchment Management Committee.

Community appointees

Community appointees serve in an advisory capacity on the drainage advisory subcommittees. Appointments are usually made every three years to coincide with the council triennial elections. However, this time the term of the appointees will be for a two year period due to a recent committee effectiveness review, which extended the period of the current membership.

Applications for landowner appointee positions on all drainage advisory subcommittees have closed. Successful/unsuccessful applicants will be notified by 31 July 2018. Find out more below.
