Speaking at a community forum 

Anyone can speak to the local board at a community forum, as long as the matter relates to a function of the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board.

The board is responsible for:

  • local council services and facilities (parks, libraries and the leisure centre)
  • listening to your views on issues of regional significance (transport, rates, or planning) and advocating to the Governing Body on these issues.

The board allocates 30 minutes for the public to speak to elected members. Each speaker has five minutes.

The other option is to speak through a deputation. This is a formal presentation requiring seven days' notice and the chairperson's approval. Deputations are given 15 minutes to speak, including time for the board members to ask questions.

If you would like to speak at community forum, contact the local board office in advance at DevonportTakapunaLocalBoard@aucklandcouncil.govt.nz.

Workshops

Local board workshops focus on overseeing and delivering projects in their work programme.

This includes topics like events, and renewing assets across the local board area.

The local board does not make decisions at these workshops.

Workshops are open to the public to attend, unless an item is deemed confidential under the Section 7 (2) of the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987.

The public can't speak or present at a workshop.
