South Gippsland Shire Council update early February 2022 - Regional Profile Survey closing soon

South Gippsland Council's project plans and updates for the community.

By news@gippsland - 10th February 2022 - Back to News

South Gippsland Shire Council is currently undertaking a community survey to help us gain an in-time snapshot of our community's priorities, likes and challenges. We want to hear about your current experience in South Gippsland. The survey results will help create a regional profile that will be used by councillors and Council staff to inform future planning, decision making, and strategy and program development.

Survey results will be used to create a regional profile that will be used to inform future planning, decision making, and program development, let the council know your concerns

In contrast to the Community Vision which explores aspirations for what the community think South Gippsland should look like in the year 2040, the Community Survey is seeking feedback on what residents are experiencing right now. These two pieces of work complement each other and together will provide a complete 'now and then' picture of our local community.

Complete the survey

To ensure a wide range of views are received, 7,800 households have been randomly selected from across the region and sent a survey invite to participate in this research. If you have received a direct invite through the mail or email, please complete that version of the survey (using your email link, direct access code or paper form), so that your responses are recorded in the important random sample part of the research. Participation is voluntary.

We urge you to participate so the data covers a good mix of experiences from across the Shire. If you haven't received a direct invite, we welcome you to participate in this 15 to 20 minute anonymous research by visiting South Gippsland Shire Council website. The survey closes 20 February 2022 so jump online quickly!The survey closes 20 February 2022 so jump online quickly!

Streetlight upgrade project

The upgrades will run until the end of March. For more information or to ask any questions, please contact Brad Kijlstra-Shone on (03) 5662 9200.

South Gippsland Shire is now seen as a leader in the area of street lighting upgrade projects across Gippsland and has demonstrated the importance of energy efficiency and greenhouse gas emission reductions to the local community
