How to Have Your Say

almost 7 years ago

Your input into this process is welcome and encouraged.  Council is seeking community input into this process to understand your opinion on this subject and the issues involved.  

 The consultation process will involve three stages;

 1.            Survey & Guestbook:    The Survey ends on 24 March 2013

Please take the time to fill out the survey below.  This will take about 10 minutes.  This survey will provide the main information on community opinion provided to Council, to form their decisions on potential direction on dog exclusion areas in sportsgrounds.  Your survey can not be viewed by anyone else using this web page.

You may also take the opportunity to make comments in the Guestbook below if you choose.  Your comments on the guestbook can be viewed by other people, and allow other users of this website a chance to understand the range of opinions on this subject. 

Please note that, unlike the survey, these comments can not be quantified.  Therefore they will not contribute significantly on the data passed onto Councillors.

  2.            Steering Committee Workshop

Council seeks to form a Steering Committee from a maximum of 10 community representatives.  The aim is to have representatives with a cross section of view points on this subject.

 This committee will undertake a workshop to develop a preferred approach.  This workshop is planned for Wednesday 27 March.  To express interest in this steering committee, please forward your details to the contact below. Expressions of interest for the workshop must be recieved by Monday 18 March 2013

With the results of the survey and input from the workshop Council staff will determine a way forword which will be present to the Council in a report to endorse for public exhibition. 

  3.            Public Exhibition

It is planned to exhibit the proposed way forward  on dog exclusion areas in sportsgrounds later this year after it has been endorsed by the Council.  Another public notice will advise when this occurs.  If you wish to be informed when the exhibition occurs, and receive a copy of the resulting document, please forward your details to the contact below. 

Input from the public exhibition will be presented to the Council, together with the reviewed way forward on dog exclusion areas.  Council can then adopt or amend the proposed way forward and assign funds to the implementation.

Consultation has concluded.
