Community satisfaction survey

Each year, Council participates in the annual telephone survey of local residents that is facilitated by Local Government Victoria. Commencing late January and continuing into March, households may receive a call from an independent market research agency, National Field Services.
  • From 12 midday Tuesday 22 September to 6 pm Sunday 24 October, the City of Port Phillip will enter into the Election Period for the Council Elections.

    You can still contact us during this period and we’ll resume regular operation on Monday 26 October.

Our market research agency are restricted by legislation as to when they can call residents. Calls will be received between 9 am and 8.30 pm on weekdays, 9.30 am and 5 pm on Saturdays, and 10 am and 5 pm on Sundays. This helps get a true representation of the community.

Similar surveys will be undertaken across most Victorian councils in the coming months. The survey is designed to assess our performance across a range of measures to identify ways to provide improvement or more effective service delivery to residents and allows us to benchmark our performance to other councils.

Should residents have any questions regarding the survey, please contact us.
