New Zealand is divided into sixteen regions. These form the highest level of local government. New Zealand is also divided into 67 territorial authorities, consisting of 13 city councils, 53 district councils, and the Chatham Islands Council. Most territorial authorities are wholly within one region, but there are a few that cross regional boundaries.
