Background and objectives

The Victorian Community Satisfaction Survey
(CSS) creates a vital interface between the council
and their community.
Held annually, the CSS asks the opinions of local
people about the place they live, work and play and
provides confidence for councils in their efforts
and abilities.
Now in its twenty-second year, this survey provides
insight into the community’s views on:
• councils’ overall performance, with benchmarking
against State-wide and council group results
• value for money in services and infrastructure
• community consultation and engagement
• decisions made in the interest of the community
• customer service, local infrastructure, facilities,
services and
• overall council direction.
When coupled with previous data, the survey provides
a reliable historical source of the community’s views
since 1998. A selection of results from the last ten
years shows that councils in Victoria continue to
provide services that meet the public’s expectations.
Serving Victoria for 22 years
Each year the CSS data is used to develop this State
wide report which contains all of the aggregated
results, analysis and data. Moreover, with 22 years of
results, the CSS offers councils a long-term measure of
how they are performing – essential for councils that
work over the long term to provide valuable services
and infrastructure to their communities.
Participation in the State-wide Local Government
Community Satisfaction Survey is optional.
Participating councils have various choices as to the
content of the questionnaire and the sample size to be
surveyed, depending on their individual strategic,
financial and other considerations.

Focus areas for the next 12 months
11
Perceptions of Council performance improved over the past year on almost all measures
evaluated. This includes significant gains in 11 service areas. Council experienced the
highest ratings’ gains (six to seven point gains) in the areas of emergency and disaster
management, recreational facilities, law enforcement, disadvantaged support services,
and business and community development. These are strong results for Council.
Overview
Council should focus on improving services which have the greatest influence on overall
opinions: informing the community and making decisions in the community’s best interests
(positive driver of opinions) and the condition of local streets (negative driver of opinions).
It is important to note that both community decisions and local streets and footpaths are
viewed as highly important council areas, but large gaps (~20 points) currently exist
between rated importance and perceived job performance in these areas.
Key influences on
perceptions of overall
performance
Council performs significantly lower than Metropolitan group averages in just a handful of
areas: recreational facilities, waste management, appearance of public areas, and sealed
local roads. Otherwise, Council rates in line with or significantly higher than group
averages. Council rates lower than the State-wide average on only one service area: the
appearance of public areas.
Comparison to
state and area
grouping
In addition to the areas mentioned above, Council should look to maintain and build upon
its improved performance on sealed local roads and the appearance of public areas, which
have a strong influence on overall perceptions. Ratings for both are at their highest levels,
so at the very least, maintaining these highs will go a long way towards maintaining overall
positive perceptions. Residents in the North and those aged 50 to 64 years rate Council
lowest on most measures; particular attention should also be paid to these cohorts.

Overall performance
14
The overall performance index score of 65 for
Brimbank City Council is in line with the 2020 result,
increasing by just one index point in the past year.
• Overall performance is at its equal highest level in
the last decade; a result previously only experienced
in 2018.
Brimbank City Council’s overall performance is rated
statistically significantly higher (at the 95% confidence
interval) than the average rating for councils State
wide, and in line with the Metropolitan group average
for councils (index scores of 61 and 67 respectively).
• Ratings among women are significantly higher than
in 2020 (index score of 68, up six index points from
2020).
• Overall performance ratings are higher in the South
(index score of 67) than in the North (index score of
60), but no groups are significantly higher or lower
than the Council average.
Half of residents (49%) rate the value for money they
receive from Council in infrastructure and services as
‘very good’ or ‘good’, three and a half times as many as
rate Council’s value for money as ‘very poor’ or ‘poor’
(14%). A further 32% rate Council as ‘average’ in terms
of providing value for money.

Top performing service areas
19
J00967 Community Satisfaction Survey 2021 – Brimbank City Council
COVID-19 response (index score of 76)
is the area where Council performed
best in 2021.
Council’s COVID-19 response (index score of 76) is
the area where Council performed best in 2021.
Council performs significantly higher than the
Metropolitan group and State-wide averages in this
area (index score of 73 each).
Art centres and libraries is Council’s next highest
rated service area (index score of 72, down three
points), followed by:
• Recreational facilities (index score of 71, up six
points)
• Emergency and disaster management (index
score of 71, up seven points).
Recreational facilities, while one of Council’s highest
rated service areas, is one of only a handful of
measures where Council rates significantly lower
than the Metropolitan group average.
• Impressions of recreational facilities improved by a
significant six points in the past year, with gains
occurring across almost all demographic and
geographic subgroups.
Impressions of Council performance increased from
2020 on almost all measures evaluated, with the
largest gain occurring in ratings of emergency and
disaster management services.

image
Council experienced only slight declines in just three
areas in 2021. These declines are not considered
significant and occurred in the areas of art centres
and libraries (index score of 72, down three points
from 2020), town planning (60, down one point), and
planning and building permits (59, down one point).
Council rates lowest – relative to its performance in
other areas in the area of lobbying (index score of
58). • Council’s result for lobbying is statistically in line
with the Metropolitan group and significantly higher
than the State-wide average for councils (index
scores of 56 and 55 respectively).
In the areas of lobbying (index score of 58, 22%
‘can’t say’), planning and building permits (index
score of 59, 27% ‘can’t say’), population growth
(index score of 60, 20% ‘can’t say’), and town
planning policy (index score of 60, 24% ‘can’t say’)
there is an issue with relatively poor ratings coupled
with high percentages of residents who are unfamiliar
with the services in these areas, i.e. an extent of both
displeasure and unfamiliarity. The same cannot be
said for parking facilities (equal second lowest rating
of 59 and just 4% can’t say), indicating there is
familiarity and displeasure.

Influences on perceptions of overall performance
26
The individual service area that has the strongest
influence on the overall performance rating (based on
regression analysis) is:
• Informing the community.
Clear and consistent communication to residents
about key local issues provides the greatest
opportunity to drive up overall opinion of Council’s
performance.
Following on from that, other individual service areas
with a moderate to strong influence on the overall
performance rating are:
• Council’s COVID-19 response
• Condition of sealed local roads
• The appearance of public areas
• Decisions made in the interest of the community
• Waste management
• Condition of local streets.
Looking just at these key service areas, Council’s
COVID-19 response has a high performance index (76)
and a strong positive influence on the overall
performance rating, so maintaining this positive result
should remain a focus.
Other service areas that have a strong positive
influence on overall perceptions, but perform relatively
less well, are community decisions, the condition of
sealed local roads and the appearance of public areas
(performance index of 61, 63 and 67 respectively).
A focus on transparency about decisions Council
has made in the community’s interest and
continuing to attend to resident concerns about
local roads and public areas can also help to
increase Council’s overall performance rating.
Council's waste management is performing reasonably
well (performance index of 69) and has a more
moderate influence on the overall performance rating.
Maintaining efforts here can help to shore up overall
community opinion.
The condition of local streets (performance index of 63)
has a moderate negative influence on overall
performance. Improving perceptions in this area will
ensure opinion does not have an overly negative
impact on overall ratings of Council.
J00967 Community Satisfaction Survey 2021 – Brimbank City Council

The regressions are shown on the following two charts.
1. The first chart
shows the results of a regression
analysis of
all
individual service areas selected by
Council.
2. The second chart
shows the results of a
regression performed on a smaller set of service
areas, being those with a moderate to strong
influence on overall performance. Service areas
with a weak influence on overall performance (i.e. a
low Standardised Beta Coefficient) have been
excluded from the analysis.
Key insights from this analysis are derived from
the second chart.
Regression analysis explained
27
We use regression analysis to investigate which
individual service areas, such as community
consultation, condition of sealed local roads, etc. (the
independent variables) are influencing respondent
perceptions of overall council performance (the
dependent variable).
In the charts that follow:
• The horizontal axis represents the council
performance index for each individual service.
Service areas appearing on the right-side of the
chart have a higher performance index than those on
the left.
• The vertical axis represents the Standardised Beta
Coefficient from the multiple regression performed.
This measures the contribution of each service area
to the model. Service areas near the top of the chart
have a greater positive effect on overall performance
ratings than service areas located closer to the axis.

Influence on overall performance: all service areas
28
The multiple regression analysis model above (all service areas) has an R² value of 0.606 and adjusted R² value of 0.581, which means that
61% of the variance in community perceptions of overall performance can be predicted from these variables. The overall model effect was
statistically significant at p = 0.0001, F = 24.13. This model should be interpreted with some caution as some data is not normally distributed
and not all service areas have linear correlations.
