CALLING ALL PILBARA RESIDENTS
Spare ten minutes and tell us what you like about the region and help shape the future development of the Pilbara and regional WA.
|Survey closes:||30 November 2016|
Pilbara residents are urged to have their say and help shape the future of their region by completing the Living in the Regions 2016 survey.
The survey is a safe and convenient way for regional residents to contribute thoughts about their region by sharing their perceptions and experiences of living in Western Australia's regional communities.
More than 10,000 people responded when the Western Australian survey was last conducted in 2013, the largest and most comprehensive of its kind in the country.
The survey, conducted by the Department of Regional Development via Ernst & Young, is available online at http://www.drd.wa.gov.au/Regions2016
Regional residents will also receive the survey in the mail, with 50,000 copies distributed at random across regional WA. The survey will remain open until November 30, 2016 and results are expected to be available mid-2017. Results from the 2013 survey are available at http://www.drd.wa.gov.au
