In the October 2018 community newsletter, the Kuaotunu Residents and Ratepayers Association asked the community to respond to a survey based on the Community Plan document that was created almost 10 years ago.
The Committee condensed the original plan down to 20 main themes, and asked the community to advise how important they considered each of these themes to be, plus give us their thoughts on anything else that they felt should be considered.
A total of 208 responses were received to this survey (equating to approximately 170 properties). The responses are summarised below, ranked in order of the percentage of responses where the question was thought to be either Very Important or Somewhat Important.
2. Urban, commercial and rural development to be controlled and appropriate for the area in order to retain Kuaotunu's existing ‘small beach village’ atmosphere and bush/farm backdrop.
1. Support for measures to make Kuaotunu more cycle and pedestrian friendly.
4. Preservation of Kuaotunu’s dark skies i.e. limiting artificial light which impedes visibility of the night sky.
3. Improved telecommunications and electricity infrastructure along with community consultation.
