Who can speak 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.
How long you can speak for
The board allocates 30 minutes for the public to speak to elected members. Each speaker has only 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.
