Reviewing local government surveys across Australia

Client:Independent Local Government Review Panel

The Independent Local Government Review Panel was appointed by the Minister to look at ways to strengthen the effectiveness of local government in NSW.

Elton Consulting was selected by the Panel to review community surveys and polling on the role, expectations and performance of local government across Australia. This included surveys and polls undertaken by state and local governments, as well as those commissioned by local government associations, industry groups, non government organisations and media outlets.

As part of the project we reviewed surveys and polls on a wide range of local government services, including key areas such as waste, roads and footpaths, libraries, community services, parks, development assessment and environmental services.

The analysis informed the Panel’s its deliberations on the future of local government in NSW.
