Giving us your input is one way you can contribute to our city’s future and help the Council make the right decisions.
Below are some of the ways to have your say:
Participate in consultations and engagement
You can give your views and influence decisions on plans, policies and projects that are going through consultation or engagement.
Opportunities for sharing your ideas and feedback can include surveys, workshops, open days where you can chat directly with staff and elected members, and formal submission processes. As part of formal submission processes you can also choose to speak in support of your submission at the hearing of the matter.

Contact the elected members
You can contact all elected members by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by phoning 07 985 6171 and leaving a voice message. To contact elected members individually you can use the elected member contact details information.
If you would like to meet with the Mayor in person to raise any issues or concerns, you can call the Mayor’s executive assistant on 07 577 7011 to make an appointment.
Speaking at a Council meeting
Do you have a great idea to make your city or your community even better? An innovative proposal to address an issue your city is grappling with? Come speak to Council in a public forum.
Public forums are periods of time set aside at the beginning of committee and council meetings where people or organisations have 10 minutes each to present ideas to their elected representatives.
Contact Council's governance team on 07 577 7000 to arrange a time.
