Buller District Council

Domain Boards

Domain Boards are considered to be Sub-committees of the Buller District Council elected to manage on a voluntary basis the Reserve/s in their particular area.

Domain Boards have delegated authority from the Buller District Council to administer and manage the Reserve/s.

Specific powers shall be:

  • To approve annual budgets for the Reserve/s
  • To raise and expend finance
  • To hire and dismiss staff
  • To enter into contracts necessary for the efficient running and suitable use of the Reserve/s
  • Any other powers necessary for the efficient and effective management of the Reserve/s

Following the Annual General Meeting of each Board, the Secretary elected is asked to write to the Buller District Council, attention Property Officer. This is to notify Council of the name, address and contact details of the elected Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer of their respective Board. This allows Council to communicate with the right people when it comes time each year following the 30th June for the Domain Board’s to have their accounts audited by Council.

Council will write to each Domain Board after the 30th June each year asking them to forward their balance sheet, cheque books, cashbook, receipt books, invoices and bank statements to Council for Audit purposes by the 31st July each year.

The Buller District Council appreciates the time and effort that the many volunteers put into running the Reserve/s within their particular area and thanks you all for taking an interest in your area.

Should any Domain Board require assistance or guidance from the Council then please contact Rick Barry on 03 788 9649 or email Rick@bdc.govt.nz.
