Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Every four years councillors develop a Council Plan that sets the major direction for Council. Making sure we understand and reflect the aspirations of our community, investors, service providers and visitors is an important part of developing the Council Plan.

We will be conducting our Community Perceptions Survey from 3 December 2020 to 29 January 2021. We encourage you to have your say on the future of the shire. East Gippsland has dealt with the impacts of drought, major bushfires, COVID-19 and industry changes over recent years, and we expect that these will bring changes to the way we all, including Council, continue to live and do business.

This survey is the first step in engaging with the community to develop the Council Plan and will also be used to review the Community Long Term Vision. There will be other dedicated engagement activities in 2021, so we encourage you to look out for these and participate where you can.

Our communities are strong and resilient, and it’s important the Community Vision and Council Plan are informed by what the community considers to be important in how Council ensures that service delivery reflects the changes we have all been through.

The new Council is seeking input from the community about all services, supports and interactions including the development of the Council Plan.

The survey is available on our website or hard copies can be collected at any of our customer service centres. It will also be distributed to local community groups.

In addition to this survey we will also be using information sourced from previous community forums and engagement, including bushfire recovery, business groups and place planning, to inform the development of this plan.

You may have participated in a similar survey late in 2018 that focused on specific communities. There will be similarities between the questions asked, but this survey has a broader focus.

We appreciate you taking the time to provide your valuable feedback. All details and individual responses are confidential. If you have any questions about the survey or Council Plan process, please contact us.

By completing this survey you can go into the draw to win one of ten $50 gift card prizes. Terms and conditions can accessed in the documents on the side information panel.
