Elected members

Every three years, as part of the local body elections, the West Auckland community votes for members of the community to represent their views on the licensing trust of the area they live in. The members elected to each Trust are the community’s voice and an essential link between the community ownership of The Trusts and the management of the commercial businesses of The Trusts.

The last election for elected members to Waitakere Licensing Trust took place on Saturday the 12th of October 2019. Below are the current elected members for Waitakere Licensing Trust. You can view the Waitakere Licensing Trust Code of Conduct here and Standing Orders here.
