The results of last year’s Tweed Shire Council community survey are in – and while satisfaction is high for most services, roads are one of the main areas for improvement.
The survey involved around 1700 locals from the Tweed Shire and asked residents to share their vision for the Tweed of the future.
The three five priorities that locals want the council to focus on include:
- Roads, traffic, footpaths and cycleways (61%)
- Water supply (43%)
- Parks and gardens (27%)
- Lifeguard services (25%)
- Community services (24%)
Locals also said they were “very satisfied” with cemeteries (96%), the art gallery (95%) and the aquatic centres (94%).
Meanwhile, the survey showed residents were least satisfied with local roads – just 67% were happy with them, while also marking it as “extremely important”.
Results from the survey have now been incorporated into the Tweed Shire Council’s new Draft Community Strategic Plan 2017-2027 and the Council’s four-year Delivery Program which will soon go on public exhibition.
