Quality of Life Survey

Complete our Quality of Life Survey and share how you feel about life in the Queenstown Lakes District.  

As a district we’ve grown fast. Really fast. There are more people, more tourists, more traffic, more everything.  But what impact has this had on us all?  The Quality of Life survey aims to find out by asking about a range of subjects such as growth, safety, income, community connections and personal resilience, to name a few.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should you complete the survey? 

Firstly, you could win one of two $500 prezzy cards. 

Secondly, it’s your chance to really have a say on some of the hot topics.  Finally, if we know what the community thinks and feels about these issues we can work with our partners to do something about them. 

Didn't QLDC just do a residents survey?

Yes.  The annual Resident and Ratepayer Satisfaction Survey has just been completed and we're grateful to those who took part. 

This year is the last time we will run the satisfaction survey. Going forward the Quality of Life survey will allow us to explore broader social themes as well as satisfaction with services.   

The reason we are running both this year is because we needed the satisfaction survey results to inform our Annual Report and the Quality of Life Survey results to inform our Annual Plan.  

Who should take the survey? 

All residents and ratepayers (over 18) are welcome and encouraged to take the survey.

How long will it take to complete?

The survey will take between 10 and 15 minutes to complete.  We know we’re asking for a little bit of your time but we really need your feedback on these important issues. 

Are my responses anonymous?

All responses are completely anonymous.  

When does the survey close?

You need to complete the survey by 26 October 2018.

What will we do with the results? 

The data we collect will be available to everyone, to use in a way that benefits and supports the needs of the community.

What's the difference between 'community' and 'neighbourhood'?

Throughout the survey we refer to neighbourhood and community. 

  • By neighbourhood we mean your physical location
  • By community we mean the people you interact with.   
  • We’ll also ask you to think about the district as a whole.

Who is undertaking the survey?

The survey is being conducted by an independent company, Versus Research, on our behalf. 

You can contact them directly with any questions or difficulties you have with the survey.  Email: info@versus.co.nz or phone 0800 837 787.
