Bunbury residents, workers and business owners are encouraged to get involved in the development of a plan to tackle one of our community’s highest priorities – safety and crime.
Published 08 March 2023
The Community Safety Survey is now open with the results set be used to inform the development of crime prevention and community safety strategies to be included in the Community Safety and Crime Prevention Plan.
The plan will outline objectives aimed at directly impacting and reducing incidents of crime and anti-social behaviour, while positively improving the community perception of safety in Bunbury.
The survey will help determine community perceptions of what is needed to achieve this.
The survey is an important step that the City wants its community to be involved in, given community safety was identified as the highest priority in the most recent MARKYT Community Scorecard and is reflected in the Strategic Community and Corporate Business plans.
The survey is being undertaken by Edith Cowan University on behalf of the City with local residents, workers and business owners encouraged to take part.
The survey will remain open until 5 April, and can be accessed here.
This is just the beginning of community consultation for this project, and it is expected the Community Safety and Crime Prevention Plan will be presented to Bunbury City Council by July this year.
