Kia hiwa rā! Kia hiwa rā! Kia hiwa rā i tēnei tuku! 

Kia hiwa rā i tērā tuku! Kia hiwa rā! Kia hiwa rā! 

E wehi ana ki te Atua 

Te timatanga me te otinga o ngā mea katoa 

Tēnei tonu te tangi apakura ki ngā mate, 

Haere i te ara takimano, 

Haere i te ara ka rere kore ki muri 

E moe e! Haere atu ra! 

Nau mai piki mai kia koutou te hunga ora 

Nau mai hara mai ki Te Pou taketake e karanga nei 

Tena koutou tena kouto tena koutou katoa! 


‘Vital Update – Tauranga’ is a research project that looks at the geographic communities in Tauranga: who makes them up, and what their needs, wants and aspirations are for their neighbourhoods and the wider city. 

Acorn Foundation, TECT, BayTrust and Tauranga City Council are teaming up to carry out this research, so we can all create a better future for residents. The information will help us plan future work in our communities and create a vision for Tauranga’s tomorrow. 

The survey is being conducted by independent research company Key Research. They will protect your privacy by ensuring your identity is not disclosed.

Tell us what matters most to you by 5pm on Friday, 5 January 2020

Every voice counts. Together, let’s shape the future of Tauranga.

How do I have my say?


Go to to complete the survey – it will take you about 15-20 minutes. 

You may be approached directly if you fall into one of our priority target groups and asked to complete the survey. We are also sending out paper copies to a random selection of people on the electoral roll. 

If you or someone you know doesn’t have access to a computer, you can request a paper copy of the survey by calling Key Research on 0800 501 015 or sending an email to with your name and postal address. Key Research will mail a paper copy to you to fill in, and then return it using the prepaid postage on the back page.
