Manawatū District Council

Manawatu District Council logo

The Manawatū District Council was formed in 1989 from an amalgamation of the first Manawatū District Council, Pohangina County Council, Kiwitea County Council, Feilding Borough Council and most of the Oroua County Council (excluding Ashhurst, which joined with Palmerston North City Council). The Manawatū District Council Collection contains the records of these numerous predecessor organisations and earlier road boards and town boards that operated within the current district boundaries from 1876-1989.

The types of records found in the Manawatū archives include:

  • Accounts and financial records;
  • Aerial photographs;
  • Correspondence files;
  • Electoral rolls;
  • Engineering Plans;
  • Letter Books;
  • Historical Maps;
  • Minute books and other meeting papers;
  • Permits;
  • Rate books and valuation rolls
