About our CommitteesNgā kōrero o ngā Komiti.

Standing Committees meet every six weeks, Special Committees follow different timelines. In addition to their NCC commitments, some Councillors are also members of Joint Committees or represent us on Council-controlled organisations, boards or external groups.

Committees of Council

We have a number of committees that meet either regularly or when necessary to consider matters which require a decision of Council. We use a 'double debate' system, which means we consider most things at a Committee first before a final decision is made at a full Council meeting. Our Standing Committees meet every six weeks: our Special Committees follow different timelines.

In addition to their Napier City Council commitments, some Councillors are also members of joint committees (with other agencies), or represent us on Council-Controlled Organisations, boards or external groups.
