As the survey is not particularly user-friendly and we understand consumer places on 6th June are limited, we have developed a simpler version of the survey you can access here. We have created a Facebook Page for you to stay in touch with this initiative and provide your comments this way, if the survey is too much. Click here to follow the page. We will collate all your feedback and a member of our team will personally present it at the Consultation meeting in Perth on 6th June. If you would like to speak to us directly email
