Community Consultation

Community consultation is key to developing the Strategic Community Plan Exmouth 2030.  The consultation period will run from late October through to December 2017 and there are several ways for the community to have their say.

Community Survey

To complete the community survey go to https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Exmouth2030.  The survey is also available in hard copy if you prefer, you can drop into the Shire Administration Office or the Exmouth Public Library to collect one.

Youth Survey

It is important for the youth of Exmouth to have their say as well and we strive to achieve an accurate representation of our community’s youth.  An online youth survey is also available for young people aged between 10 – 19 years to complete.  The online survey is available at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Exmouth2030Youth. The survey is also available in hard copy and can be collected from the Shire Administration Office or the Exmouth Public Library.
