The Christchurch City Council Communications Committee met yesterday to discuss the draft Terms of Reference for the planned Communications Audit and Review.
It proposed a number of amendments. The amended draft Terms of Reference will be considered by the Council at their meeting on Thursday 8 March.
Councillor Yani Johanson, Chairperson of the Communications Committee, says, “The Communications Committee was asked by the Council to consider the draft Terms of Reference for the Audit/Review. We had a very productive discussion and have suggested several amendments. These include:
Councillor Johanson says these amendments have been put forward to strengthen the review process if it proceeds.
“At a previous Council meeting there was a request to receive legal advice over the implications of withdrawing from the contracted review. The Committee was briefed on this matter, but the decision ultimately rests with the full Council. It will also be presented at the 8 March meeting.
“The Committee also decided to meet regularly throughout the next three months given the importance and urgency with which it was felt communications needed to be looked at and improved,” he says.
