A Survey to Understand Community Concerns

Community concerns and major issues are important to Whitianga Residents and Ratepayers Association as they guide our elected committee members in setting priorities and directing us to where we should concentrate our efforts.

The survey seeks to identify the top concerns and issues faced by residents and ratepayers within the associations region which spans from Harbour Lights Drive in the north to Coroglen in the south. Answers made by each person that completes the survey will help to shape the priorities and focus areas for the association's initiatives and advocacy work into the future.

How to complete the survey 

Participation in this survey is vital in shaping the future of Whitianga. The association is asking that participants complete the questionnaire before the survey closes at 5:00 pm on Tuesday, December 5th, 2023.

The survey consists of 11 concise questions designed to gauge the community's priorities. By participating, participants contribute to defining the top five concerns or issues. As a token of appreciation for the valuable input, participants will enter a draw to win a food hamper.
