76 out of 2200 homes answered our online survey which closed in November 2020.
It has been over 3 years since our last resident’s survey ( 2017) and since then we have incorporated Seacliff into the association, and much has happened To provide Marino, Seacliff, Seacliff Park and Kingston Park residents with an opportunity to identify issues of common community interest and to give clear direction to the Association’s priorities, plans and future engagement strategies we ran an online survey which closed at the end of November 2020. 76 out of 2200 homes answered, so 3.5 % . A good response given the challenges we faced in 2020.
Residents vindicate the value of the 5049 Coastal Community Association.
Respondents to our 2020 survey said they are very pleased with the communications and activities of the 5049 Coastal Community Association, and encourage us to continue to serve our community into the future.
Based on their feedback we will continue to distribute our popular hard copy and e-newsletters on a regular basis, and we will seek to improve our website offering to enable two-way communication. (We are hoping to receive funding from the federal government’s Stronger Communities grant program.)
Residents confirmed that they want to see our beautiful coastal environment preserved and enhanced, and have asked us to continue our advocacy to ensure that new developments like Seacliff Park provide high quality open space outcomes, and that our two Councils continue to improve community and open space assets such as Kingston Park and Seacliff Plaza. The issue of Transport and Traffic also featured as a focus.
And residents near the Boral Quarry are very keen to see improvements which will reduce the levels of dust in their neighbourhood. Our Association has successfully advocated for an ambient airborne dust study to be undertaken by the EPA, for which consultation has just commenced. This dust study will provide valuable information for residents, the EPA and Boral.
There was a particularly good response from people wishing to get involved:
