Community Surveys

The Community Survey explores the attitudes of Waimakariri District residents about aspects of their community and environment. Undertaking this survey helps Council to meet its obligations under the Resource Management Act 1991 to undertake state of the environment reporting. The responses also contribute to knowledge of community priorities and residents’ views of topical issues.
