Martinborough Community Board

The Martinborough Community Board represents, and acts as an advocate for, the interests of the Martinborough community. Specifically, the Board’s role is to:

  • consider and report on all matters referred to it by the Council, or any matter of interest or concern to the Community Board
  • maintain an overview of services provided by the Council within the community
  • prepare an annual submission to the territorial authority for expenditure within the community
  • communicate with community organisations and special interest groups within the community
  • undertake any other responsibilities that are delegated to it by the Council.

The Community Boards are made up of four elected community representatives plus two Councillors and advocate for and represent the interests of their community. They play a key role in engaging with community groups.

Considine Park User Group

In December 2019 the Martinborough Community Board established a Considine Park User Group. The purpose of the group is to:

  • provide a mechanism for consultation with the community, tangata whenua, park users and other interest groups on matters affecting the ongoing management and development of Centennial and Considine Park.
  • encourage community participation in the planning, development, management and maintenance of Centennial and Considine Park
  • provide for coordination between park users, including the discussion and resolution of issues
  • monitor the management and development of Centennial and Considine Park to ensure it is in accordance with statutory requirements, including Section 17 Reserves Act 1977, (recreation classification), the Centennial and Considine Reserve Management and Development plans, and the Wairarapa Combined District Plan.

The Terms of Reference for the Considine Park User Group are available from here.
