Hutt City Council is seeking residents to join an online panel to give their feedback on a range of issues and policies affecting Lower Hutt.
This panel called Hutt City Views will seek public feedback through short, regular online surveys.
Lower Hutt Mayor Ray Wallace says, “We really want to hear the views of as many residents as possible, and from a whole range of people so that our wonderful and diverse community is well represented.”
The online panel will be able to engage large numbers of people, in a very cost effective and user-friendly way.
Wendy Moore Divisional Manager Strategy and Planning says, “This panel will be a great addition to the ways we currently engage and consult with our community. This has had great results with other councils and we are really excited to get it underway here.”
An independent research company PublicVoice will be recruiting panel members in the coming month. The company will be recruiting participants that reflect the diversity of Lower Hutt.
Interested residents can also opt into the panel by registering their interest online at huttcity.govt.nz/panel
Participation in this online panel is voluntary and all personal details will be kept private and confidential.
The results from the representative community panel selected by the research company will be reported separately to those opting in to the panel.
