Be A Part Of Australia’s Liveability Census
Tuesday, 25 May 2021The largest research and engagement project in Australian history is underway with the 2021 Australian Liveability Census, and Griffith residents are being urged to get involved.
After a year where our local neighbourhoods were more important than ever, it is the perfect time to understand what would make them better for you.
Place Score, with support from the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources, is running the 2021 Australian Liveability Census. The aim is to capture what really matters to our communities and how our cities, towns and neighbourhoods are performing today.
Griffith City Council Mayor, Councillor John Dal Broi is encouraging residents to take the survey.
“This survey is an opportunity for locals to share what is most important and have their views about our community included in a national forum," he said.
More parks or parking? Bike lanes or better footpaths? Playgrounds or nightlife? What is your idea, big or small to make your neighbourhood more liveable for you?
"Council will also be using the Census data to inform our Community Strategic Plan – Guiding Griffith 2040," said Councillor Dal Broi.
“Besides helping us get a better understanding of priorities in our community, you will also have the chance to win one of ten $100 gift vouchers to be used in over 80 retailers nationally.”
The survey is now open and closes 30 June 2021.
Have your say and take the survey http://www.placescore.org/dc
