People were invited to attend the meeting of the new Tauranga City Council from 1pm.

The council meeting will include a swearing in ceremony at council chambers and speeches from new Mayor Greg Brownless and councillors.

The results of the Tauranga City Council elections were released on October 8.

Existing councillors Leanne Brown, Steve Morris, Catherine Stewart, Kelvin Clout, Rick Curach and Gail McIntosh will also be sworn in.

The first official meeting of the new council will be held on November 22, when elected members will adopt their code of conduct, standing orders and the governance structure.

The first normal business council meeting will be held on December 6.
