Bus route community consultation

posted 5 Oct 2014, 18:37 by CPCA Secretary

The following information has been received from GWRC on Monday 5 October 2014

 Greater Wellington Regional Council (GWRC) is seeking volunteers from the Churton Park community who regularly use the local bus service. We’d like these volunteers to work with us to help come up with route options for the bus service in Churton Park.

GWRC will be running a two-part workshop for these community volunteers on the evenings of 22 and 29 October.  As a basis, previous community feedback will be used to initiate discussions at the workshops. The aim of the workshops will be to come up with options, which can then be used for consultation later this year, with the wider community in Churton Park.  A decision on the preferred option for future bus services is planned by the end of this year/early next year, so preparations can be made to go out to tender for services by the end of 2015/early 2016, with services commencing mid-2017.

 To engage and gain volunteers we will have newspaper advertisements in the local media, information flyers given out on the local bus service and posters at some local bus stops.  For your information we have attached a copy of the flyer which will be distributed to Route 54 bus customers.

 If you are interested in volunteering and attending the workshop you can register at http://www.gw.govt.nz/churton-park-registration/ by 13 October .  We’re looking for 30 volunteers who reflect the different aspects of the local community and you must be available to attend both sessions.  Should we have more than 30 volunteers we will then select volunteers based on location and use of services in order to ensure we have a good range of volunteers from across the community and their differing needs
