Council launches podcast

Waipā District Council has launched a new podcast series which focuses on hot topics from around the District.

The What’s new Waipā? podcast will regularly share local views, information and opinions about topics that are important to residents.

Communications and Engagement Manager Charlotte FitzPatrick said podcasts are becoming increasingly popular so they’re a great new way to engage with residents.  They also provide an opportunity to hear in-depth views from local guests who are knowledgeable and passionate.

Presented by ex-journalist Jeanette Tyrrell, the first episode discusses the environment and sustainability and what that looks like for Waipā, with Councillors Clare St Pierre and Susan O’Regan.

To listen to the podcast and to subscribe, visit spotify.com and search Waipā District Council.
