2017 Community Perceptions Survey

​RESULTS from Shire of Mundaring's 2017 Community Perceptions Survey are now available on the Strategic Plans page of the Shire website.

The survey, which is conducted every two years, is an important way for Council to keep informed of community well-being and better understand the community's priorities across a number of service areas.

This year's research saw a statistically representative sample of 403 Shire residents participate in a 15-minute telephone survey between 2 and 8 November 2017.

The results highlighted a number of high performing facilities and services including the Shire's libraries and kerbside rubbish bin collections, which each recorded a satisfaction rate of 83 per cent.

The majority of people interviewed were either satisfied or very satisfied with a wide range of facilities and services including, but not limited to, those below.

The results also highlighted areas for improvement such as events and cultural activities which recorded a dissatisfaction rate of 19 per cent. Reasons given for dissatisfaction included low visibility of Shire support for events and a perception that the number of local events had declined.

The survey will now be used to inform careful decision-making by Council in planning for the future. Workshops to develop the Shire's next four-year Corporate Business Plan and Annual Budget have already begun, with the survey's results providing integral input.
