Local Elections 2022 - How to Vote
From 16 September – 21 September Local Election 2022 voting papers and candidates information packs will be sent by post to everyone who is registered to vote.
By Post: The pack will have instructions on how to complete the voting paper and has a prepaid envelope to return votes by post. Completed voting papers must be received by noon on 8 October, so votes will need to be posted back a few days prior to the deadline.
In Person: Alternatively, orange voting bins will be available at 96 West End Kaikōura - both on the 1st floor by the Library and at the Council Reception on the 2nd floor. So if you’ve left it a bit late to post your vote in time or just find it more convenient, you can also vote in person at those locations.
Proposed Kaikōura Class 4 Gambling Policy
As required by the Gambling Act 2003 and the Local Government Act 2002, Kaikōura District Council is reviewing its current Kaikōura Class 4 Gambling Policy.
Amongst other matters the Policy must state whether Class 4 gaming machines are able to be established in the District, where they may be located, and the maximum number of machines allowed in the District. As a result of the review changes are proposed, including reducing the maximum number of machines from the current maximum of 60, to a new maximum of 27.
A more detailed Statement of Proposal and a copy of the proposed changes to the Policy is available from Council on its website www.kaikoura.govt.nz/latest-news, on request from the Council office (03) 319 5026, or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submissions in respect of this proposal can be made in writing and posted to:
The Chief Executive
Kaikoura District Council

Or delivered by hand to the Council Offices at 96 West End, Kaikōura
Alternatively, submissions can be emailed to email@example.com
The period for submission opened on Wednesday 21st September 2022
Submissions must be received by Friday 7th October 2022
Submitters may if they wish speak in support of their submission. Please state in your submission if you wish to do so.
