The annual Community Satisfaction Survey is conducted by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning on behalf of participating councils.

Data collection for the 2019 Community Satisfaction Survey has been completed by the market research company. The results are expected to be available in June 2019.

The Survey is designed to measure community satisfaction with Local Government performance and provide insights into how communities view the performance of their local authorities.

The Survey is used to collect your feedback about:

  • Council's overall performance
  • Community consultation and engagement
  • Advocacy – lobbying on behalf of the community
  • Making community decisions
  • Sealed local roads
  • Customer service
  • Overall council direction.

This research is led by the Victorian Government and Council has not provided any personal details or phone numbers to the market research firm undertaking the survey.
