Residents' Survey

Each year the Gore District Council undertakes a phone and online survey of residents to find out what they think about specific services and facilities, and how they feel about the District and the Council's performance.

In 2016 we engaged a new company Research First to carry out our Residents' Survey. The new methodology for reporting the outcomes of the survey produced a document both informative and easy to understand. It also produced greater engagement from the community. The response rate from the telephone survey was 38%, up from 31% in 2015, while the number of people who chose to do the survey online increased 250% to 126. 

It was worth noting that online engagement was not dominated by the younger generation. Of those residents who completed the survey via the Council’s website, 48% were in the 50 year to 65+ year age group.
