Do you care about what happens in our district? Become a Pulse Checker

What are the Pulse Checkers?

Always on the pulse, our team of Pulse Checkers are who we reach out too when we need to get a view on our services, activities, or plans. This team is our go-to to understand what our people think about what we do at NPDC. They do this by answering questionnaires, taking part in focus groups or being interviewed.

What our people think is important to us and we often reach out to The Pulse Checkers on topics such as:

  • local services
  • council planning, policy and strategy
  • NPDC spending and funding proposals.

Who can become a Pulse Checker?

Are you on the pulse? Do you care about what happens in your district? You can join the Pulse Checkers if you're a resident or ratepayer in New Plymouth District and over the age 18.

How will you seek my views?

We will seek your feedback in a variety of ways, including:

  • questionnaires
  • online surveys
  • interviews
  • workshops and focus groups.

These conversations may be face-to-face, by email, online or by telephone.

What will you ask my views on?

The consultation may be general, about NPDC as a whole, or it may be specific to a particular service or activity. 

How often will you contact me?

We generally contact members of the panel a few times each year via email to invite them to provide feedback.
