Now is the time to have your say!

Council’s 2017 strategic community plan is being reviewed. We are seeking your ideas and input – what is your vision for where we live, what is important to you.

Complete a survey by Joining the discussion below or take part in Quick Ideas Forum to let Council know what you wish to see, have and enjoy in your community over the next 10 to 15 years.

Being involved in this review is an opportunity that should not be missed.

The time to have your say will close on 31 October. After all feedback is considered Council will release a new draft strategic community plan and invite further public comment on the draft plan. We expect the draft will be ready in early 2021.

We are listening.



As a Community and as an Organisation – How are we Currently Tracking?

The results of the 2020 Community Satisfaction Survey undertaken earlier this year gave us a good insight into the community’s current levels of satisfaction and future aspirations.

You told us that you want to live in a safe and friendly community that’s clean and environmentally sustainable. You also told us that you want to live in a vibrant and progressive City but that preserving the relaxed lifestyle and peaceful setting we enjoy here in the City, is a priority. The ‘Your City 2035’ visioning exercise will delve deeper into this feedback in an effort to crystalize these aspirations and develop a strategy for their realisation over the next 10 – 15 years.

The 2020 Satisfaction Survey provides a great snapshot of how we, as a community, are tracking. How liveable is this City? What are we happy with in terms of services and facilities? Where are we falling short?

The results of the survey were very pleasing, but that’s not to say there isn’t room for improvement. In terms of overall performance the City ranked as the equal highest regional Local Government. We scored highly as a great 'place to live’ a clear 13 points above industry average. The City of Busselton was also the standout industry leader in the ‘place to visit’ category. Compared to other Local Governments we scored highly in the areas of economic development, access to goods and services, streetscapes, cycle ways, playgrounds, libraries and events. Areas where the City performed relatively weaker or where a decline from past performance was evident included community consultation, waste and recycling, Council vision and waterways management.

The survey also revealed several specific community priorities. These included ensuring value for rates; balancing coastal protection and coastal development; supporting economic development and improving transport networks.

The outcomes of the 2020 Community Satisfaction survey, including these clear priority areas, will be explored further as part of this important visioning exercise. We encourage you to share your views about your City and provide input into how and where resources should be allocated in the future.

The 2020 Community Satisfaction survey was undertaken by an independent market researcher on behalf of the City of Busselton. It is statistically valid. Outcomes were benchmarked against past survey results and the results of other Western Australian Local Governments.
