A Wyndham council survey has identified traffic, road maintenance and safety, policing and crime as the issues of most concern to residents.
The council’s 2017 annual community survey, released last month, was conducted by Metropolis Research.
Researchers doorknocked more than 7000 houses and received more than 1200 responses to the survey. Traffic management was found to be the number one issue in Wyndham.
More than a third of those surveyed said traffic management was a matter of concern in Wyndham, compared to 26 per cent in the previous survey.
Road maintenance and repairs placed second and safety, policing and crime was identified as the third-highest matter of concern in the community.
More than 10 per cent of respondants said they were worried about parking (12.8 per cent in 2016) and 9.4 per cent identified “parks, gardens and open space issues” as an issue (13.2 per cent in 2016).
Satisfaction with the council’s overall performance rose from 6.65 per cent (out of 10) in 2016 to 6.69 per cent last year.
Wyndham mayor Peter Maynard said this was the fifth year in which the council had commissioned a survey.
“We will use the feedback that residents have given us over the next year to help us better represent the Wyndham community and improve on the services we provide,” Cr Maynard said.
