2017 Community Survey underway now

over 2 years ago

From Tarcutta to Tolland and Glenfield to Galore – we want to hear from you.

No matter where you live in the Wagga Wagga Local Government Area, residents will be able to share their thoughts in the 2017 Community Survey.

The survey is undertaken by an independent research provider, with random phone interviews to take place next month.

“The Community Survey gives you the opportunity to have your say on a wide range of Council services,” General Manager Robert Knight said.

“You’ll be able to highlight what’s important to you, what’s going well and what we could be doing better.”

From 3 to 15 August, the independent survey provider will conduct the telephone survey using the details collected and also contacting additional residents at random from across the Local Government Area.

“If you’re approached by the survey provider for your contact details or are contacted at random, please take the time to have your say and contribute to this important project,” Mr Knight said.

The survey is conducted every two years, with the 2017 survey the first since the adoption of the new Community Strategic Plan 2040 - Wagga View.

“The Community Survey is an important tool in measuring Council’s performance as well as how we have performed as a community against the priorities identified in Wagga View,” Mr Knight said.

“The survey also plays a vital role in planning for the future, with the responses informing Council’s strategic planning, how resources are allocated and the service levels that are provided to the community.”

Residents who are not selected for the random survey can still have their say by completing it online before 20 August. The survey results will be published in November.

Consultation has concluded
