Community Board plans are developed every three years and outline the Boards key priorities for their elected Term. They also indicate how the Board will work in partnership with the local community to achieve the Council’s community outcomes. A key part of the development of the plan is engagement with the local community and key stakeholders to ensure that the Boards priorities reflect the needs and desires of local residents, community groups and businesses in our Board area.

Te Pātaka o Rākaihautū Banks Peninsula Community Board's key vision is to Listen to and work with community, mana whenua, partners and other organisations to protect and enhance the environmental, social, cultural and economic wellbeing of Banks Peninsula.
