Raglan Community Board Members

Raglan Community Board Members have been elected to represent the Raglan community. Get in touch with them if you have any questions or concerns.

Our Raglan Ward Councillor is Councillor Lisa Thomson.

Community Board members are elected to look after local interests and to be a link between the community and the Council.

Community Boards were established to enable communities to have a voice in decisions affecting them and to ensure people have their say on local issues.  

You can read a copy of the code of conduct here.
