    This survey is now closed

    In phase one of the development of our Long-term Plan, we considered what we will be able to invest in over the next ten years. We know we won’t be able to do everything at the same time, so there are choices to be made. To help us do this wanted to understand what is important to you.

    What the survey was about

    Through several consultations over the past couple of years, you have told us some information about what areas of Wellington you would like us to focus on. This feedback has helped us to come up with 22 draft objectives for the city that we have grouped into the four Community Wellbeing areas: Environmental, Economic, Cultural and Social

    While all of these areas will feature in some way in the Long-term Plan, wanted to know which of the above wellbeing areas were more or less important to Wellingtonians - this survey provided us with feedback.
