The Hutt City Council (HCC) commissioned MMResearch™ to undertake an evaluation of the effectiveness of community representation in Lower Hutt as it wants to obtain a better understanding of current representation arrangements that enable communities to actively participate in local decision making. The focus of the research is to uncover the overall effectiveness of how delegations, functions and mechanisms work and whether improvements can be made to ensure that decision making and governance by Council fully reflect local community participation.

The evaluation findings assist HCC in assessing the effectiveness of the operational structure of Community Boards or Community Committees and identify any improvements that may be able to be made in the way Council works with Boards and Committees and, in turn, how Boards and Committees work with their respective communities.
