Public Safety Initiatives

Consultation has concluded

As part of our commitment to improving public safety and helping people to feel safer in public spaces, we're looking for feedback, views and opinions about:

  • public safety in a selected number of public parks in Mitchell Shire
  • suggestions on initiatives that could be implemented to increase and improve public safety.
  • proposed safety measures for identified parks
  • safety methods currently implemented (both completed and soon to be commenced) at other park/precincts.

Your feedback will help us:

  • evaluate current safety infrastructure in place and provide baseline data for upcoming projects
  • look at alternative public spaces that we can activate
  • help us make informed decisions about funding activities and infrastructure that the community wants and needs.

The survey closes on Thursday 30 May 2019 and will take 5-10 minute to complete.

    Mitchell Shire is keen to hear feedback from the community regarding public safety in a selected number of public parks across the municipality to support both the evaluation of current safety infrastructure in place, and look at alternative public spaces that we can activate.

    We recognise the benefits in consulting with the community prior to embarking on projects; and this is where you come in. We want your views and opinions on the proposed safety measures for identified parks as well as your views of safety methods currently implemented (both completed and soon to be commenced) at other park/precincts.

    Your views will inform data collection for future grant opportunities as well as evaluation of completed projects and baseline data for upcoming projects, ensuring that we are funding activities and infrastructure that the community wants and needs.

    Please complete this short survey to share your views on public safety in public spaces, and provide suggestions on initiatives that could be implemented to increase and improve public safety. It will take between 5-10 minutes approximately

    The survey will be open until 30 May 2019.
