Survey to confirm the community conversation on news updates

September 02, 2017

CAMPASPE Shire wants your say on how you would like to receive council information — and you could win a hamper of local produce.

With more than 100 different services and more than 37,000 residents across the shire it is imperative council information is communicated within the community.

Chief executive Jason Russell said effective communication assists council to raise awareness of its projects and plans, to improve services, as well as building stronger relationships within the community.

‘‘Many council services, projects and plans are well known but there are also many that are less known, which can result in the community feeling uninformed,’’ he said,

‘‘The information gathered from the survey will go a long way to ensuring the wider community is kept informed of council decisions, services and programs.’’

Following on from the Campaspe Conversation Day it was found people wanted to receive council information in local newspapers and via a printed home-delivered newsletter.

The communications survey aims to delve further to help council confirm the type of information wanted and the means for communicating it.

‘‘The communications survey is a way to further connect with residents,’’ Mr Russell said.

The survey is now open and can be accessed via council’s website.

Additional copies of the survey are available from the customer contact centres.

The survey closes on Friday, October 27.
