Deputation - Bronwyn Zimmerman

Ms Bronwyn Zimmerman made a deputation regarding the recommendation that Council not proceed with the proposed public consultation review of Te Manawa under section 17A, and that Council accept an “enhanced status quo” for Te Manawa.

Ms Zimmerman expressed the view that Boards of Council Controlled Organisations are inherently biased, and therefore their recommendations are not a sound basis for Council to change their mind regarding the review.  She requested Council not to abandon the S17A review merely because both Elected Members and CCO Boards were tired of the process, and asked that they engage with the community further, particularly as the process was supposed to be ‘robust, measured and thorough’.
