The participating councils have formed a Joint Committee under schedule 7 of the Local Government Act to guide the development and implementation of the Waikato Plan.
The Waikato Plan is one of the Waikato Mayoral Forum workstreams. The Waikato Mayoral Forum (which includes all the Waikato region’s local mayors and the regional council chairperson) is working together to implement an integrated work programme to boost the regional economy and deliver multi-million dollar cost savings through integrated initiatives. Visit the Waikato Mayoral Forum webpage for more information on the various workstreams.
Non-local government members have also been included on the Joint Committee so the plan reflects more than only a local government view.
Please click the ‘Joint Committee Members’ on the drop down menu for more information on the committee members.
The Joint Committee will inclue iwi, and is supported by a Strategic Partners Forum.
