Wa­ter, ex­er­cise and dogs – res­i­dents’ poll

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS - By KRIS DANDO

You’re more likely to ex­er­cise seven days a week if you live in eastern Porirua, be dis­sat­is­fied with dog con­trol in the north­ern sub­urbs, and en­joy a good wa­ter sup­ply if you live in Ti­tahi Bay.

That’s ac­cord­ing to re­sults from the Porirua City Coun­cil an­nual res­i­dents’ sur­vey, pub­lished re­cently.

The sur­vey, which polled 401 res­i­dents, in­cluded a wide range of ques­tions. The coun­cil uses an­swers to gauge whether their ser­vices and ac­tiv­i­ties are meet­ing tar­gets.

The re­sults showed vari­a­tions around Porirua, in­clud­ing:

Res­i­dents from the North­ern ward are not very sat­is­fied about dog con­trol and the city’s CBD, but are more likely to use the coun­cil’s web­site.

Res­i­dents from the Western and Eastern wards are not very sat­is­fied with coun­cil play­grounds.

Res­i­dents from the Eastern ward are not very sat­is­fied with the stormwa­ter sys­tem.

Res­i­dents from the North­ern and Western wards are bet­ter pre­pared for an emer­gency.

North­ern ward res­i­dents see fes­ti­vals and events as not very im­por­tant.

Beach main­te­nance is seen as very im­por­tant to 90 per cent of Maori, but just 71 per cent and 77 per cent of Euro­pean and Pa­cific Is­land res­i­dents re­spec­tively.

In terms of coun­cil ser­vices, wa­ter sup­ply was the res­i­dents’ No 1 pri­or­ity in all three wards.
