We Asked, You Said, We Did

Below are some of the issues we have recently consulted on and their outcomes.

Tuggerah Lakes / Lake Macquarie Community Survey 2015

We Asked:

In November and December last year Council asked you about your concerns and knowledge on Tuggerah Lakes and Lake Macquarie

You Said:

We received 132 responses to this survey.

It is clear that 100% of residents who responded are in some way concerned about our lakes and the aquatic life in and around them.

65% are concerned about the visual issues with the lakes and 66% rate the importance of sustaining the natural environmental health, for example the seagrass.

We Did:

Council will use these results to guide the development and delivery of the Estuary Education and Communications programs. These programs aim to increase the community's knowledge of our estuary and encourage positive behaviour change and active participation in volunteering and leisure activities. Up to date estuary information will be disseminated through newspapers, website, social media, workshops, tours and in situ signage.

Thank you for your input in this consultation.

East Wyong Masterplan

We Asked:

In October and November last year, Council asked for your thoughts and ideas for the future of East Wyong.

You Said:

There were 133 responses and it was clear the community would like to see more sporting facilities and an upgrade to existing ones.

95% of residents and groups that responded are concerned that this part of Wyong has been forgotten.

There are concerns for the financial position of Council and no monies being allocated to improve services.

We Did:

This information is going to be used to move forward with the draft masterplan for the East Wyong area.

Thank you for your input to this consultation.

Website Survey

We Asked:

In October and November, Council asked about your experience using the website and how you used it.

You Said:

60% said they use the site for waste information, 32% visit the site to pay rates, and 18% view public exhibitions. The site is being used daily for numerous subjects within the one visit, including lodging complaints.

We Did:

This survey is being used to make positive changes to our current website to better meet the needs of our users. We are using your results and comments to inform a review currently being carried out to improve our website and make it as useful and easy to use as possible.

We continually work on reviewing content to keep residents as informed as possible.

During the consultation process, we ask for your feedback, you tell us and then we make positive changes. Public participation is key to our work. See what happens with We Asked, You Said, We Did.
