Coun­cil launches on­line fo­rum

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Greater Welling­ton Re­gional Coun­cil has launched a new on­line fo­rum for peo­ple to have their say about what the coun­cil does.

‘‘The first topic for dis­cus­sion in the on­line fo­rum is the fu­ture for Baring Head, the new­est ad­di­tion to our re­gional parks net­work,’’ chair­woman Fran Wilde said.

The new dis­cus­sion fo­rum can be found at havey­our­say.gw.govt.nz.

‘‘This is an ex­cit­ing new way for peo­ple to have their say about the busi­ness of our re­gional coun­cil and at the same time see what oth­ers are say­ing about the same topic. Tools like this greatly sup­port a more open way of mak­ing de­ci­sions,’’ she said.

‘‘We’ve re­cently linked up with an or­gan­i­sa­tion called Bang The Ta­ble that is pro­vid­ing the ser­vice that runs our new fo­rum. Bang The Ta­ble has been ac­tive in Aus­tralia for some years and their ser­vice . . . is now ex­pand­ing to other parts of the world. I re­ally en­cour­age peo­ple to have a look at this new fo­rum and par­tic­i­pate in the dis­cus­sions.’’
