In a bid to overturn a scathing approval rating, Christchurch City Council is making moves to create a new residents’ forum.
The council says it wants people to feel they are being listened to and their views are respected. It also wants more people to trust the council’s decision-making process.
In May, the council released its annual residents’ survey, showing just half of the city’s residents were satisfied with the services it provided – down from 62 per cent last year.
Some 23 per cent of respondents were dissatisfied with council's performance and 27 per cent were neutral. It is the lowest result since 2007, when the question was first asked as part of the survey.
How do you feel about the council's performance? And will a new forum help? Give us your thoughts below.
