Unitary Authority - New Zealand

New Zealand

In New Zealand a unitary authority is a territorial authority (district or city) which also performs the functions of a regional council. New Zealand has five unitary authorities: Gisborne District, Nelson City, Tasman District, Marlborough District, and the new Auckland Council.

The Chatham Islands Council is not usually considered an unitary authority, although it acts as a regional council for the purposes of the Resource Management Act 1991.
