Meet others in your community and get involved with decision making in your area

Get involved and have your say

All areas across the city will have community meetings and events for you to attend and get involved.  Meetings may be held online or in a community venue.

These meetings will give you the opportunity to:

  • meet people and groups in your neighbourhood
  • share ideas to improve your community
  • discuss problems with service providers
  • talk to your councillors about projects and activities you'd like them to support with their area committee funding

Contact your local councillor or local group to find out more.

You can also email your local area committee:
