Who We Are:
Communities & Residents

Existing for over 81 years, C&R – Communities and Residents is a voluntary grass-roots association of members, and is the longest standing political grouping in Auckland local government.

Its purpose is to provide leaders for Auckland’s development, both locally and regionally; to help all the people who live in Auckland.

We do this by encouraging and supporting like-minded people both as candidates and as elected local government members of Councils, Boards and Trusts across the Auckland Region.

We Stand For

- Common sense and good governance
- More power to local communities
- Greater Council transparency and accountability
