Council’s leisure and recreation facilities have received a tick of approval following the recent community survey but transport, utilities and planning services and council’s communication with residents has been given the thumbs down.
The survey which was run by Iris Research helps council identify areas of priority and plan for the future. The survey was conducted online and by telephone.
At a public meeting last week, Geoff Besnard, of Iris Research told community members that they had expressed their highest level of satisfaction with services related to leisure, recreation and to a lesser extent the environment.
“Services related to the transport, utilities and planning services offer council the greatest challenges when it comes to meeting your expectations.
“You have expressed a strong desire for council concentrate on taking a stronger leadership role, on allowing greater community involvement in decision making and being responsive to community needs,” Mr Besnard told his audience.
Full results are on council’s website and will be discussed in council next year.
