Positive attitudes in Christchurch

UMR has done polling of residents and business in . Some of the more interesting results:

  • 61% of residents say Chch heading in right direction and 21% wrong direction – more positive figures than for NZ as a whole
  • 95% are aware of the CBD rebuild plan and 56% support it, 30% are neutral and only 13% opposed to it
  • 78% of Chch businesses say Chch heading in right direction and 8% wrong direction.
  • 99% of businesses are aware of the CBD rebuild plan and 74% support it, 15% are neutral and only 7% opposed to it

I’d say the team will be delighted with those results. It’s also good to see that the Christchurch residents by a 3:1 majority are positive about the direction of their city as that stands in contrast to the daily doom and gloom pushed by some of the local opposition MPs.
