Mayor's message

September 2019


I would like to thank the community for their overwhelming response to our recent biennial Community Perceptions Survey.  With over 840 fully completed responses, this provides us with excellent data to be able to improve areas that are important to you.

Since the last assessment, undertaken in 2017, there has been substantial improvements in community satisfaction in many areas, most significantly; governance, leadership on community issues and customer services.  Satisfaction with the overall performance of the Town is 71% and 94% of survey respondents rated the Town as either a good or excellent place to live. 

This information will help guide the Town’s Community Strategic Plan, and I look forward to keeping you informed of the delivery of this Plan, and seeing how this continues to benefit our community.

Jock Barker,
