How's Life?
Kei te pēhea tōu ao?
过得怎么样?
Como vai a vida?
元気にしてますか?


The third annual Quality of Life Survey is here and we are keen to know "How's life" in our district?

For this year’s survey we have continued to work closely with our partners, such as the District Health Board, to ensure that the questions we are asking will be useful in guiding the future decisions of Council and public service providers. We will bring all partners together to discuss the results of the survey, as well as develop specific actions.

Open to all members of our community 18 years and over (not just ratepayers), this is a chance for you to provide feedback on key issues from the comfort of your home.

For the 2020 survey, the questions focus on how you feel about key issues such as employment, housing, health services, the environment, transport, growth and more.

We've included many of the same questions as previous surveys so progress can be tracked year on year along with a further focus on how COVID-19 has affected our communities. It's important to understand and track this data as work to support the district's recovery evolves.

By taking part you can help Council and public service providers understand what the big issues are and where the need is greatest to help plan for a better tomorrow. It's also a great opportunity to let us know what you love about this beautiful part of the world.

You can also opt into the prize draw to win one of five $250 Prezzy cards!


The Quality of Life survey closed at 5.00pm on Sunday 18 October 2020.

Prize winners will be announced shortly after the close date and a summary of findings will be published towards the end of 2020.


HOW DID WE USE PREVIOUS year's data?

Based on what you told us, several big issues were identified including a need to take climate action, provide more active transport options, and address a shortfall in maternity and healthcare.

Various projects have been prioritised based on the 2018 and 2019 survey findings, such as drafting a climate action plan and holding discussions with the SDHB and Ministry of Health about access to health services. The 2020 Survey will build on the feedback gathered from previous years and will also guide Council decisions including the QLDC 2021-2031 Ten Year Plan which is coming up early in the new year.
