Farewell Richard and Michele
A small get-together was had last weekend to say farewell to Richard
and Michelle Blundstone.
Many would know Michele from her cooking days in Michele &
Nathalie's Kitchen classes on the island, and Richard with his
involvement in local sailing.
We wish them all the best in their new venture down south.

COMMUNITY SURVEY RESULTS RELEASED
Pittwater Council has released the findings of its first ever
Pittwater-wide customer satisfaction survey.
The survey was conducted during July through a telephone interview with
400 residents. The 400 residents were randomly selected and represented
the current demographic of Pittwater based on the 2006 Census.
The results of the survey, by the Micromex Research Group,
showed that residents were ‘moderately’ or ‘highly’ satisfied
with the Council’s performance in 29 our of 33 service areas.
The 400 participants were asked to rate their satisfaction with Council
services ranging from the quality of development in Pittwater, the
standard of roads and domestic waste collections through to the level
of support for local businesses, community involvement in
decision-making and environmental initiatives.
The main findings of the survey were:
• 65% of residents were satisfied with
the Council’s overall performance;
• 10% were dissatisfied, mainly with
services linked to development and roads
• 96% of residents felt a sense of
belonging in Pittwater
• 92% felt safe in their community
• 71% of residents felt the Council was
ethical, open and transparent in its dealings
• 99% of residents regularly recycle waste
• 63% of residents feel that Pittwater’s
land use reflects their wishes.
When asked what they believe were the major issues confronting
Pittwater in the next five years, 62% of residents nominated
development, 14% a lack of facilities, 12% the state of local roads and
Mayor Harvey Rose said that the survey overall provided very positive
feedback on Council’s performance while pinpointing areas which needed
“The survey is part of an ongoing process to enable the Council to
improve performance and services.”
General Manager Mark Ferguson said the results were generally pleasing
for the Council, but that further work was required on those services
that residents were not satisfied with. ”For example, maintaining local
roads, availability of car parking in village centres and community
involvement in decision making,” he said.
“Where there are gaps in our service delivery improvements
can be made.”
Mr Ferguson said a series of community workshops with survey
respondents would be held in October to identify how to respond to the
findings on service gaps.
