Submissions made to other Organisations

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Submissions are made to other organisations on a wide range of issues that may affect the city and/or the Council.  This is regarded as an important way to ensure the views of Council and Hamilton's residents are advocated at a city, regional and national level.

There are two types of submissions made:

  • Council submissions - are discussed and formally approved at a Council committee or Council meeting.   Note: Submissions pertaining to the Resource Management Act (RMA) are made under the Chief Executive’s delegated authority for RMA submissions, but are still Council submissions.
  • Staff submissions - primarily focus on technical issues, are reflective of Council policy, and are approved by the Chief Executive.

See archived submissions for previous years.
