UPDATE: Results of the independent community survey show stakeholder satisfaction across key areas of Council performance and delivery. The survey results were benchmarked against around 30 other WA Local Governments and the City of Busselton’s overall performance index score ranked 74 out of 100. Please access the full report via the document library.

The survey, which was conducted independently by Perth-based company Catalyse, found that the City of Busselton was leading WA councils in six areas:

  • access to Mayor and Councillors;
  • economic development;
  • access to goods and services in the local area;
  • sense of community in the local area;
  • lighting of streets and public places; and
  • tree management.

Many of the priorities identified in the 2017 survey reflect those identified in previous surveys conducted during the development of the City’s strategic and corporate business plans. As such, many have already been captured in the City’s long-term plans. These include:

  • traffic management;
  • coastal area management;
  • economic development;
  • playgrounds, parks & reserves;
  • sport & recreation facilities; and
  • safety & security.

Planning has commenced in a number of the above priority areas, with the planning for upgrades of the Busselton local road network to improve access into the CBD underway. The new sea wall is almost complete on the Busselton Foreshore with beach restoration works ongoing at Wonnerup Beach. The new sporting pavilion at Barnard Park has been completed and another club-house is planned at Lou Weston Oval for this financial year. CCTV has been installed at the Busselton Foreshore to monitor activity at the skate park.


The City of Busselton is planning for the future to ensure it continues to meet local community needs.

Please take 5 minutes to rate your local services and facilities. This information will assist Council to prioritise where it should be allocating resources.

The scorecard is open to all residents aged 18 years or older in the City of Busselton. Please complete one scorecard per person. Responses will be processed by CATALYSE® and will remain confidential in accordance with the Privacy Act.

The Community Survey is now closed.
