Buller District Council

Councillor Martin Hill

Councillor Hill has lived in Buller for 14 years and was first introduced to many of our ratepayers while running a hospitality business in Westport. For the last eight years Martin has worked for Bathurst Resources Ltd and understands how important mining is to our local economy. At the same time he understands our needs to address climate change. He will always seek new clean economic opportunities which are respectful of our environment and especially those which have potential to offset our carbon liabilities.

Martin is dedicated to full transparency and engagement with our ratepayers and will pursue every chance to reduce our rates by eliminating unnecessary spending while remaining efficient at the delivery of core council services.

In his spare time Martin enjoys the plentiful outdoor activities which Buller offers.
