Community consultation

Has anyone been to the first community consultation meeting with the Hagley/Ferrymead community board on the 22nd Oct. There is another one on the 3rd Nov which I am attending.

Just wondering what people think about the boards ideas to ask the community what their priority outcomes and values should be.

There is going to be a lot more focus towards community activities and recognised community standards for all residents and businesses in the area. I think this is a great place to start.

The community board is encouraging people to attend and share their views.

The meeting on the third is in the evening which is great because it gives people the change to have their imput and are not restricted by work activities.

I’m attending the community board meeting tomorrow. I’ll post back some of the discussions as long as it doesn’t breach any confidentialilities. I suggest that if anyone is particulary interested you should try and attend.
