This Forum has been developed for the singular purpose of Information Sharing, by all rate payers, landowners, and citizenry; who have suffered any abuses and/or neglect; by their Local Authorities and Regional Councils.

This forum is open to everyone, members & non-members alike.

This website is available for the benefit of all our communities to browse and discuss individual problems and difficulties, in respect of these bureaucratic monoliths.
Discussion builds awareness and your knowledge, so that you are not isolated by these officious groups.
Empower yourself- share you experiences good or bad - hopefully you will learn some simple solutions from one another; which may save you time and money.
Everyone of you are important and you deserve to be treated with respect the numerous charges that are levied on you by the authorities from rates, rents, dog registrations, parking fees etc etc; involve everyone of us in our cities and towns.
You pay their salaries, they are meant to be there to serve you!
