All My Place FAQs
How do I register for and attend a workshop?
To register and attend a workshop, simply head to our Events tab on Facebook and register for the workshop you'd like to attend.
Why are you doing these workshops?
The purpose of these facilitated workshops is to talk to the community early ahead of formal consultation later in the year. This is to understand public views on these topics before draft strategies are created for Climate Change, Housing, and Future Development. For townships (Makarora, Hāwea, Luggate, Albert Town, Kingston, Glenorchy & Kinloch), it also provides a chance to talk about upcoming chapters within Stage 3 of the Proposed District Plan.
What is the format of the evening?
evening will follow a structured Full Circle format to share and brainstorm
ideas together. This means there will be 3-4 tables covering specific topics.
Attendees will start at one table and spend 15 minutes discussing a topic with
other attendees and a table facilitator. When the 15 minutes is up, attendees
will then move to the next table. This repeats until everyone has been to all
the tables and have returned to their initial table. At this point, the key
themes/messages for that table will be discussed and presented to the room.
Can I present?
No. This is because this is a structured Full Circle style workshop to discuss specific topics in 90 minutes. This is different to other style QLDC events which are usually a presentation, Q&A or drop-in session.
Why do Arrowtown and Arthurs Point have a combined event?
Due to resourcing we are only able to hold a certain number of workshops in the district.
Other townships have specific events for them as they will be directly affected by the Townships chapter in Stage 3 of the PDP. This is something that does not affect Arrowtown, Arthurs Point, Queenstown or Wanaka.
The decision was made to hold a combined event for Arrowtown and Arthurs Point (separate to Queenstown) as there are climate change, housing, and future development issues common enough between these two locations.
What happens with all the information gathered afterwards?
The information gathered at these workshops and through the online portal will be collated and referred to when shaping the first drafts of these strategies and also plans for the district plan. These will then be consulted on formally later in 2019.
What if I want to discuss other topics?
will be a board available at the workshops where you can write down your
contact details and suggestions/questions relating to other topics. These will
be followed up on by the relevant QLDC representatives.
Will there be an opportunity for questions?
will be a few minutes at the end of the evening for questions relating to the
topics discussed at the workshop.
