Newcastle Council has started an email/internet-based initiative to consult with the community.
This is not meant to replace the good ol' fashion face-to-face consultation, but for everyone reading this blog it's an approach that could work for you!
As Council says...
Become part of the group of residents from all ages and walks of life who take part in consultations with Council. Join Newcastle Voice and share your views.
Simply go to www.newcastle.nsw.gov.au/myvoice and join up.
