Timaru DC City Hub resident perceptions Survey

To complete the City Hub Strategy project, an important part of the Timaru District Council's Long-Term Plan (LTP) 2021-31, sound research was required across the district to gather residents' views, ideas and aspirations for the city centre of Timaru. The research provided a mechanism for residents to identify and prioritise their preferred purposes for the city centre and the activities/experiences they wished to have there. The research findings will serve as input and guidance for significant investment decisions for the city centre.
