Community satisfaction survey

As part of our promise to you and in line with our Customer Charter, we recognise the importance of a great experience for all. Our annual Community Satisfaction Survey is your chance to give us feedback so we can keep improving. We also survey you after we resolve your enquiry, if you provide us your email. 

Each year a state-wide community satisfaction survey is carried out throughout Victoria local governments. Participation in this survey is optional, but we believe strongly in its value.
