By paying your rates, you’re playing a part in Canterbury’s future. But there are other ways you can contribute to shaping your region. Here’s how:
We need to balance the perspectives of all Cantabrians. Hearing from you helps our decision-making in how to manage the land and its natural resources. You can:
- Comment on a proposal: Your ‘two cents’ is worth a lot. Share it here on our online consultation site.
- Present at a Council meeting: Put your views on the record. Find out how to attend a Council meeting.
- Contact a Councillor: Go straight to the decision makers.
- Participate in a panel: Be a ‘brainstormer’, before a plan or policy is prepared and sign up to our online community panel.
Together we can work towards a Canterbury that speaks to us all.
- Teaming up: Planning an event or project? Looking for a partnership opportunity? Talk to us about helping in your corner of Canterbury. See the types of support.
