Your Council

Waitomo District Council provides services to the community, as required by statute or determined by Council Policy, in a cost effective manner.

We provide leadership in relation to issues that affect the Waitomo District Community, through the sustainable management of the environment and promotion of the District's needs and aspirations. We ensure that the District's infrastructural assets and associated resources are utilised and managed in a responsible way for the benefit of residents and ratepayers both for today and for the future.

  • Council’s vision for the Waitomo District is - Creating a better future with vibrant communities and thriving business. This future relies on the promotion of a healthier, safer and more rewarding lifestyle across all of the diverse communities that make up our district.

Continued growth in the tourism market and a strong farming industry provide many opportunities for the current population, new residents and entrepreneurs.
