Taupo District Council

About Taupo District Council

As per the Local Government Schedule the Taupo District Council archive retains the records that document the decisions and interactions undertaken in its role.

Capturing records from our predecessors to the present day, our earliest records date from the 1920's with the formation of the Taupo Road Board.

Holding over 18000 records with subject matter relating to electricity, cemeteries, water, property, consents, rating, forestry, licensing, roading, airport, fisheries, civil defense, community, arts, and enterprise to name a few. In short all those areas that a local authority and its community interact to provide services within the district and plan for its future.

We have 4 collections in The Community Archive (with a total of 23 items) »
