The elected members of Tauranga City Council are keen to discuss your views on issues that interest you in the Draft Ten Year Plan 2012 - 2022 either informally, via this forum, or formally via a submission.
You are invited to post your feedback on this forum. You may wish to direct your feedback/comments/questions to:
- a specific elected member
- all elected members
- the rest of the Forum participants.
Being clear about who the feedback/comments/questions are directed to makes it easier for them to know they need to provide a response.
You may also just make a comment that does not require a response. That is okay as well.
All the elected members will receive the postings on this forum and have the opportunity to respond.
The forum is intended as an avenue for dialogue between elected members and yourselves. However Council staff may respond to some questions simply because they have the details at hand. If they do provide a response the staff member will identify themselves as such.
You will need to give some personal details when registering but these are kept to a bare minimum. Doing this shows good faith that you are authentic and are genuine in the views you have submitted. We will NOT share your personal details with anyone externally. The display name shown on the forum will be your first and last name. This is to encourage the use of an authentic name in all discussions.
You can also make a formal submission, read the entire Draft Ten Year Plan 2012 - 2022 or the Summary (4.6mb pdf)
