Auckland Council is looking for a diverse range of Aucklanders to be on a panel which will be used as a sounding board for future policies and services. Manager of Communications and Public Affairs Shelley Watson says the People's Panel gives Aucklanders an opportunity to provide feedback on the things that are important to them. "We want to know what Aucklanders think about our services, policies and plans, and to hear new ideas about how Auckland can become the world's most liveable city." To join click here to log on, complete your details and the Council will invite you to complete your first survey or feedback form. Participants will be asked to provide feedback on at least three topics a year via a monthly email. In return, Auckland Council will share the results and feedback so that residents can see how their views are impacting and shaping council policies, plans and services. "Auckland is a culturally diverse region. The People's Panel needs volunteers from all communities across the region to join in and take part. We want to ensure that results and feedback represent the views of all Aucklanders," Watson says. "We particularly want residents from the West, South and North Shore areas. The former Auckland City and Rodney District areas are represented from previous panels whose membership has transferred from the former councils."
