The Norfolk Island Regional Council supports a buy local campaign to create a strong voice for local business in media while encouraging the community to buy local and also recognise that off-shore businesses have a place in the Island’s economy.

To ensure accurate data collation, this survey is only to be completed by Norfolk Island residents. Your input into this Buy Local Survey will assist Council in understanding consumer practices on Norfolk Island.

To help you complete the survey please keep in mind that a “local business” includes all goods and services available on island e.g. retail shops, hair and beauty services, food outlets, health and wellbeing,  professional services, restaurants, cafes etc.  

Council invites you to answer these survey questions about your consumer practices.  All answers will remain anonymous. Results of this survey will form the basis of a report for Council.
