Council community satisfaction survey

Results for 2015

The 2015 Community Satisfaction Survey has been completed.

Sixty-nine councils participated in the survey this year, with interviewing completed during February and March. A minimum of 400 interviews have been undertaken within each participating municipality.

Participating councils received their reports at the end of May which included comparisons to previous years, the state-wide result and the group results of like councils.

About the survey

The survey is a statewide telephone survey used to collect direct feedback from the community about councils, covering the following main areas:

  • 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

The survey is conducted by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning on behalf of participating councils. A minimum of 400 local residents and ratepayers in each municipality over 18 years of age are selected at random.

Results for 2012-2015

Surveys since 2012 have used an improved methodology (questions and sample size) which means that the results are not directly comparable to 2001-2011 surveys.

Results for 2001-2011
