Residents’ feedback of Council services to be canvassed
South Taranaki residents will have the opportunity to give feedback on the performance of the South Taranaki District Council during its annual resident satisfaction survey (which started at the end of last week, Friday 7 February).
The telephone survey will be conducted by independent research company, Research First, on behalf of Council and will run for around three weeks.
There is also an online version of the survey available by clicking here.
Council’s corporate services group manager, Marianne Archibald, says residents will be called at random on week days between the hours of 3.00pm and 8.30pm, and between 10.00am and 5.00pm on weekends.
“The survey gives residents a chance to tell Council what they think about a wide range of council services and activities,” says Ms Archibald.
“Residents will be able to rate Council services such as libraries, roads, parks and playgrounds, public toilets, rubbish and recycling collection to name a few. They’ll also have the opportunity to rate the overall performance of the Council,” she says.
“I encourage people to participate in the survey if contacted, as the results play a valuable role in Council’s planning for the future and it lets us know where we’re performing well and where we need to do better.”
The survey seeks to achieve a representative cross-section of residents across townships and rural areas of the District and across various age groups and gender.
The survey is expected to take around 15-20 minutes to complete and results should be available in April.
