Playgrounds, major events and roads have come a long way when it comes to resident satisfaction.
The positive trend was identified through analysis of community survey data from the past seven years, including 2019 results.
Satisfaction with playgrounds has increased by 19%, while major events and condition of local or residential roads have both increased by 17%.
Satisfaction with Council services in 2019 was similar to 2018 results, with no significant increases or decreases.
The 2019 survey showed high levels of satisfaction for areas including waste collection (including green waste and recycling), our library and major events – all more than 80%.
These were also mentioned in the survey by residents as some of our most important services.
Thanks to the 400 residents, randomly selected by an independent research company, who completed the phone or online survey. Thanks also to our Have Your Say online community members who provided feedback.
