Buller District Council

Vision, Mission & Values

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.

Local government affects you daily. We encourage you to get to know us and to find out more about how you can participate in local decision making.

In 2016 Council worked with the community, Councillors and staff to discover our core values. These are the principles that guide us in decision and action.

One team – Shared direction, shared effort

Future Focussed – We seek solutions that are fit for the future
