For Residents

Why join community panel?

Ever had an opinion about what goes on in your community? This is your chance to have your say. Being a part of community panel allows you to influence change in your council area. Use your voice to tell your council what’s working for you and what isn’t.

By participating in council surveys, you get to have your say on a range of important community topics such as, how public space is used, council services, greening and environmental issues, emerging technologies and developments, transportation, rates and taxes and much more.

You also get other cool things, like prizes! Prizes are offered for participating in surveys. Past prizes include dinner vouchers, movie passes and vouchers to local retailers.

So how does it work?

After signing up, you will get sent an invite to participate in anywhere from 2 to 4 survey’s a year about important council issues, including budgets, strategic plans, community innovations and satisfaction surveys.
