LGNZ announces partnership with FairWay Resolution

LGNZ announces partnership with FairWay Resolution

Local Government New Zealand (LGNZ) today announced a significant new partnership under EquiP, its Centre of Excellence.

EquiP was launched in March to work directly with council staff, mayors and elected members to provide customised guidance and tools that drive efficiency and effect throughout local government.

LGNZ is delighted to announce a significant new partnership with FairWay Resolution Services, a Crown-owned company providing conflict management and dispute resolution services.

“LGNZ and FairWay have identified that our effectiveness as a sector can be further improved if we increase engagement and all quick resolution on issues,” Mr Yule says.

“FairWay has appointed former Kapiti Mayor Jenny Rowan to lead this important relationship and over coming months we will roll out specific offers for members.”

FairWay delivers services in adjudication, conflict coaching, customer complaint systems, dispute resolution services, facilitation, mediation, skill development and system design.

“As an industry-leading conflict management organisation, we are very excited to be collaborating with LGNZ to develop and deliver capacity building services to assist councils to help reduce the cost of conflict and enhance community relationships,” says Jenny Rowan, FairWay Resolution’s Business Director, Local Government.
