The elected members of the Western Bay (our councillors) play an important part in achieving this vision.
This is how the councillors see their role:
Council will be recognised as a leader providing strong governance and efficient, effective services through understanding the identity of our communities.
How the Council organisation works to support the district and council visions is achieved through the operational mission statement:
Provide people with best value service by implementing plans that deliver social, cultural, environmental and economic progress across the Western Bay of Plenty District.
You'll see the 'People Plan Progress' elements of our mission statement represented on communication material, and throughout this site.
