Map of Horizons Region

The Horizons Region extends over 22,000 km2 – from Ruapehu in the north and Horowhenua in the south, to Whanganui in the west and Tararua in the east. It has a population of approximately 250,000 residents. As your Regional Council our role differs to that of city and district councils - we are responsible for ensuring the sustainability of the region’s land, air and water resources on behalf of the communities we serve. We also contract passenger transport services, play an important part in regional transport planning and road safety education, work to reduce the risk and impact of flooding, and lead the planning for, and response to, emergencies to help keep people and properties safe.
