  • Accountability & Performance Committee – Richard Northey
    • CCO Strategy and Appointments Sub-Committee – His Worship the Mayor

  • Auckland Future Vision Committee – His Worship the Mayor / Deputy Mayor
  • Transport Committee – Mike Lee

Standing Committees

  • Hearings Committee – Noelene Rafills
  • Regulatory & Bylaws Committee – Des Morrison
