Council Mission & Vision

The Buller District Council is the territorial authority for the northern West Coast. Our goal is to promote the well-being of our local communities. We have a wide range of responsibilities under the Local Government Act.

Our mission is – ‘To serve the residents of the Buller district, conscious of their needs, by providing facilities and services and creating an appropriate environment for progress and development while preserving the distinctive natural environment, as well as the cultural and historical environments.’

Further information on Council’s plans and goals for the upcoming year are included in our Long Term Plan. This document, along with information on our community’s goals and our local governance statement, can be found on our website, under Publications.
