Hearing from our communities – what we’ve heard so far

Over the past few months we have been engaging with our communities to hear what’s most important to people for Greater Christchurch.

We’ve had over 3000 responses to the online survey, held workshops with almost 400 rangatahi (young people), and ran a series of stakeholder workshops.

Further information and summaries about what we’ve heard can be found at the drop-down boxes below.

During October – November 2020 we ran a community survey asking people what they want to see for 2050, and what their priorities and concerns are.

You can see a snapshot of the results from the first 3,000 responses here [PDF, 454 KB].

In late November we held a series of stakeholder workshops to define the 30-year wellbeing aspiration for Greater Christchurch – our people and place.

We had over 150 people attend these workshops, which built on the knowledge gained from the 3000 online survey.

You can see a summary of the aspirations and measures below from each of the workshops which are key inputs into the development of our strategic outcomes and vision.

Over September – October we spoke to 383 rangatahi in workshops about what they want Greater Christchurch to be like in 2050, what they liked least about Greater Christchurch right now, and what should be prioritised for 2050.

You can see a summary of these workshops here [PDF, 1.4 MB]. 

In November we ran a business survey asking participants what makes Greater Christchurch an attractive business location and undermines Greater Christchurch as a business location both now and in the future.

Over the coming months we will be working on the detailed development and testing of draft vision, outcomes and collective actions.
