Xyst developed a Consultation Plan for the Parks and Open Spaces Strategy.
At a high level the consultation was split into two phases. Phase one focused on broad information gathering which informed the Draft Strategy and was undertaken by MPDC.
The second phase was undertaken by Xyst and consulted on the Draft Strategy. Consultation methods involved an iwi engagement, an online survey, three community workshops, targeted interviews with key stakeholders, intercept surveys at local events and letters/emails sent out to respondents that provided feedback in the phase one.
