No Place Like Home community survey:
Have your say before Monday!
February 17, 2017: ‘Exciting’, ‘welcoming’ and ‘paradise’ are just some of the words used to describe what residents love about the coastal Bay of Plenty in Tourism Bay of Plenty’s No Place Like Home community survey.
The survey, which is open until Monday, February 20, has already seen more than 600 residents voice why they love living in the region, where they like to go and what could be improved for the future.
Tourism Bay of Plenty Consumer Marketing Manager Abby Parkin says they are absolutely thrilled with the responses so far, as they have provided a genuine insight into the thoughts and feelings of locals. But, with three days until closing, she urges those who haven’t had their say to go online and do so.
“These responses are crucial for us. The comments in this survey will directly influence how we showcase attractions and opportunities to our people, by giving them the tools to understand more about this wonderful place in which we live.
“While we are incredibly pleased with the number of people who have submitted their views so far – and the extensive details they have provided – we want to hear from as many of our residents as possible, to get a complete overview of the region as a whole.”
The survey is the first step of a regional campaign, designed to get Bay of Plenty locals sharing the places they like to go and the experiences they like to have on their own doorstep, for the benefit of locals and visitors alike.
“From this survey, we will be able to facilitate the sharing of knowledge between our locals, as well as create comprehensive strategies around how we tell our residents and guests what’s available to them,” says Abby.
“It’s truly by locals for locals, with a goal to grow the region further into a vibrant, thriving location. So please take just five minutes and make your views known.”
