Speaking at a monthly business meeting

Local board meetings are held monthly and are a good opportunity for members of the public to raise issues with their local board. You can speak informally in a public forum, or formally through a deputation. Further information on these options can be found here.

If you would like to speak at a monthly business meeting, contact the local board office in advance at waihekelocalboard@aucklandcouncil.govt.nz.

Community forums 

Community forums are held monthly and are a good place to express your opinion to your elected representatives.

When and where they are held
Community forums will be held on the second Wednesday of the month starting at 5:30pm and are held at:

Waiheke Local Board office, 10 Belgium Street, Ostend, Waiheke

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 Waiheke Local Board. The forum also provides an opportunity to provide feedback on workshop agenda items (see below).

The board is responsible for:

  • local council services and facilities (parks, library and community facilities)
  • listening to your views on issues of regional significance (transport, rates, or planning) and advocating to the governing body on these issues.
A speaker may not speak about a matter that: 
  • has already been considered and decided 
  • has a separate public hearings or consultation process attached to it 
  • is subject to a quasi-judicial process 
  • is outside of the scope or functions of that local board or committee.

How long you can speak for

The board allocates one hour for the public to speak to elected members during this forum. Each speaker has 15 minutes including time for questions from the board members. 

A separate open question and answer session will be held after the forum.
If you would like to speak at community forum, contact the local board office in advance to let us know at waihekelocalboard@aucklandcouncil.govt.nz.

Purpose of workshops

Local board workshops focus on oversight and delivery of projects in their work programme.
