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:

  • an overall performance index score of 69, four points higher than 2018. This is the higher than the metropolitan average and significantly higher than the state-wide average of 60
  • an overall Council direction score was 7 points higher than 2018 and 4 points higher than the metropolitan average. This gives support to our Community Plan and its associated strategies.
