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.
