The Foxton Retailers Who DIDN’T Hear About HDC’s Update Meeting on the Street Upgrade & Why You Aren’t REALLY Being Consulted

Amid outcries that the public were consulted on the $1.6 million main street upgrade, we heard on the street today from a woman who had done some footwork of her own on the issue. Last October 2016 HDC hosted a consultation meeting with retailers at the Masonic premises in Foxton. It was by invitation. The day after that meeting she spoke to pretty much all of the retailers along the main street to ask if they’d received an invitation to the meeting the day before. Turns out she encountered more than eight people (representing eight shops) who knew nothing of the meeting and who never received an invitation. Now one or maybe two omissions would be understandable in light of an imperfect postal system or other human error, however eight is quite a lot to pass off under those reasons. With such a major spend up of $1.6 million, surely a follow up courtesy call to the mailed invitations would be standard procedure? And why did at least eight retailers not receive an invitation? A little shoddy don’t you think?


So what is the definition of consultation? 

consultation
kɒnsəlˈteɪʃ(ə)n/
noun
  1.  the action or process of formally consulting or discussing.
“they improved standards in consultation with consumer representatives”

synonyms:discussion, dialogue, discourse, debate, negotiation, conference,deliberation, “the recommendations include increased consultation with local people”.  SOURCE


 Are you being asked what you want? Or are you being told what is going to happen?

Consultation: are you being asked what you want and listened to? Or are you being told at those meetings what is going to happen?
We are frequently nowadays being given the illusion we’ve been consulted and as we all know in the Horowhenua true consultation hasn’t REALLY been happening witness the current outcry about the street upgrade, and the above being one example of that.
Now, consider the REAL reason you’re not being consulted PROPERLY. The people of Chilmington Green in the UK have encountered similar to what NZ districts are encountering (download their pdf file about this). Districts world wide in fact have encountered the same. The real reason is contained the UN’s Agenda 21 plan. (You can read/watch more on that at these pages, be sure to check the Agenda 21 sub pages) on the site. This is about the UN plan for global governance (aka the new world order) spoken often about by world leaders since the early 1990s. It is:
An action plan implemented worldwide to inventory and control all land, all water, all minerals, all plants, all animals, all construction, all means of production, all energy, all education, all information, and all human beings in the world …. Rosa Koire

Agenda 21 / 2030

I notice now, the local media is saying Council goings-on are being called a conspiracy by the public…  thing is, they want to dismiss any questioning of their activities as conspiratorial. In fact, Agenda 21 is anything but conspiratorial. It is a bona fide UN document available for download on their website link here (aka Global Governance … our ex Labour PM is working on it as we speak). Because it’s so very long very few will ever read it however we now have the benefit of hindsight as councils worldwide are implementing it (including NZ) and while it comes under the guise of the great ideal, ‘sustainable development’ (found all over our council websites)  … again with hindsight, we all know that what councils and central government are doing is far from sustainable. We know this is pure lip service. We can only swim in 40% of our waterways people. Read further on how Agenda 21 is affecting and will continue to affect you …
endagenda21

Go to our Agenda 21 pages including the sub page Agenda 21 in NZ and watch the videos also. Whistleblowers world wide have analyzed these plans with a fine tooth comb and you have the benefit of hearing what they’ve found, including what is happening now. Read our recent post on the Australian family who lost their farm to foreclosure. Listen to ex Australian politician Anne Bressington also on this.

  1. Hi I attended that meeting in October 2016 representing a tenant on Main Street – it was not a consultation meeting and not purported to be – it was a timeline meeting letting everyone know what was happening and when. The public meetings concerning the upgrade were several years ago – when no-one raised any of these issues – there were only 50 odd submissions made then.

    1. Thank you for this correction Sistasara. My error, having checked with the person who gave me the information she does confirm it was an update meeting. Nevertheless, it still remains that 8 people weren’t invited. And regarding the previous ‘consultations’, it is clear from feedback in other regions (the point of this article) the current Agenda 21 (ICLEI) council way of consultation is to provide an illusion of consultation. It was as far back as 2010 I believe that these took place and much has changed since then, one being the $68 million debt. In my opinion paying down that debt and dealing with the unclean water are higher priorities than street makeovers which may or may not provide more business.
