Nau mai, haere mai and welcome to our Democracy and Engagement Department's ideas page

This page has been created to provide a space for our people to share thoughts and ideas on what we should be focusing on over the next few months as we build our new department.

At our first department meeting this week the lead team opened a discussion around our purpose, priorities, and proposed leadership promise:

"To be inclusive, to support your wellbeing, to enable high performance and to keep you informed"

Our purpose

  • Provide governance services that enable the Mayor and councillors to lead the people of Tāmaki Makaurau effectively.

Our previous purpose statements

CEI : To lead inclusive participation in democracy and drive insight-led decision making

Draft new purpose statements

  1. Championing inclusive participation to inform democratic decision-making OR

Our 'whole of department' focus areas for the next quarter are:
