Community Survey

Our 2024 Community Survey is open for your feedback! The results we receive will help us improve our priorities, processes, systems and facilities, ensuring we provide you with the best possible services. The survey is open until Sunday, 9 June 2024 and takes about 15 minutes to complete.

Fill in the survey here.

An external agency is also collecting survey responses through randomised phone calls on our behalf. If you receive a call asking for your help in completing the survey, this isn't a scam and you won't be asked for personal details (e.g. your address, date of birth etc.). If you are concerned about a call you receive, please report it to the relevant authorities.
