Community satisfaction survey

At Glen Eira Council, we recognise the importance of great customer service. Our annual Community Satisfaction Survey Report (PDF) is your chance to give us feedback so we can keep improving.

We recognise the importance of great customer service. Our annual Community Satisfaction Survey Report is your chance to give us feedback so we can keep improving.

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

The survey assesses our performance and looks for ways to improve our service delivery. It also allows us to fulfil some of our statutory reporting requirements.

Key findings

Key points coming out of this year’s survey include:

  • Council’s Overall Performance index score was 67, two points lower than 2019, however, this remains higher than the Metropolitan average and significantly higher than the State-wide average of 58.
  • In comparison to Metro and State averages Council is well above State averages in all Core measures and above Metro averages in 5 of the 7 Core areas.
  • Council has largely consolidated the significant gains made in 2019 on overall performance and customer service.
  • In 2020 all Core measures are above the 2018 levels although a number have shown a small decline from 2019. For example,
    • Community consultation improved 5 points in 2019 from 55 to 60 and this year continues to remain at 60;
