How do you feel about ‘Have Your Say’?
The NSW Government is often keen for you to Have Your Say.
The North Sydney Council wants your ‘Say’ on many things.
Often there’s not enough hard information for a real ‘Say’.
Often it has a take-it-or-leave-it feeling.
Often it feels as if the project is being finalised and the ‘Say’ comes at the end.
Does it sound just a little like ‘Have your say, it’s happening anyway’?
Or even ‘Have your say and go away’?
Most people might like to respond: ‘I don’t want to Have My Say and go away. I want to know what and why. I want to know what the options are. I want to be involved in deciding what should be done. I want the community to do some of the planning.’
