Three copies of this document are available in the reference section at the Motueka Library, and if you would like your own monochrome copy please contact us - the cost is $6.00 per copy to cover material expenses. (Please include contact details.)

March questionnaire and interviews

During March we conducted a questionnaire with 46 community and business leaders, selected to reflect a cross-section of opinion on various matters. Thirty-nine of them also completed an interview based on a SWOT analysis - Motueka's Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats. The purpose was to help us shape a final public (online and street) questionnaire to run through May.

Facebook group "Motueka 2030"

On April 1st a Facebook group named "Motueka 2030" was created to allow widespread conversations about Motueka now and in the future. It was open to all Facebook users. By the start of May had reached 470 members, and by the end of May had reached 550. Since then, an average of two people per day joined in the first 10 days of June.

For those who are not Facebook account holders, here is a Word document showing the accumulated topics/questions and member responses. [Last updated June 10]

May questionnaire (paper and online versions)

During May a 45-item questionnaire was run using a paper version handed out through a variety of channels but mainly a booth outside the museum, and an online version using Survey Monkey. 540 people contributed their ratings on the 45 items, roughly the same number via both media. Here are the results, in raw form, collated and ranked.

Quick questionnaire

During May an alternative 20-item questionnaire was run; it was sometimes called "20 Questions" and other times the "Quick Questionnaire". It fulfilled several purposes: a quick survey for those in a hurry, a set of 'starter questions' for debates on these issues on the Facebook group, and as a basis for a quirky (but popular) 'pebble voting' activity where people put pebbles in jars to indicate their preferences. Many of the questions were different to those in the main questionnaire. Here are the summed results of this activity.
