The Waimakariri District Council will pay for childcare costs incurred by elected members up to $6000 per child, per year – uncapped.
In the proposal document, it stated there were concerns a lack of financial support for childcare created a "barrier for people, in particular women, to enter elected positions in local government".
The allowance was introduced by the Remuneration Authority last year, but the decision to adopt it was left up to individual councils to decide.
