Marlborough District Council has established its first blog – offering the public a way to join the discussion about a vision for the region’s future. The blog can be accessed via the Marlborough Smart and Connected section of this website.
The Council has done some preliminary work to try and draft some aspirations for the future of Marlborough – addressing both economic and community issues. Several presentations and focus group meetings have now been held to get a district-wide discussion going.
Last week, the Council took its presentation to Havelock. Susan Foster, Wendy Walker, Peter Churchward and Ginny Russell were amongst those keenly discussing what they’d heard.
At the heart of this work is the wish to see Marlborough become a region that is ‘smart and connected’. It’s about becoming a better ‘connected’ community.
Suggestions are being put up for everyone to discuss, add to or maybe improve upon, including proposals that Marlborough should aim to have:
The new Council blog enables an online discussion about the Smart and Connected concept and how it might apply here. We will post information that has emerged from the research Council has done so far to enable people to offer feedback and to join in the debate on how we, as a community, can make progress in Marlborough.
The blog will be moderated to ensure the discussion remains focussed on a community-wide vision for Marlborough.
You can become involved in the discussion on the Smart and Connected vision in a number of ways – by attending community meetings, sending us your thoughts via email, phoning us on 03 520 7400 or by commenting on our Smart and Connected blog.
