Council launches online forum
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.’’
