Thank you to everyone who participated by completing the online survey or filling in a vision questionnaire at one of our centres or libraries, or at an event. Your input will help shape council's 10-year community plan and other key plans and strategies.

In total 4003 surveys were completed by Onkaparinga residents. In addition 961 vision questionnaires were collected, where local residents, business owners and visitors shared their vision for our region.

This is an amazing result, and we are grateful to everyone who took the time to provide feedback.

Congratulations to the winners of our four $500 vouchers:

  • S Blunden - Seaford Heights
  • M Budack - Aldinga Beach
  • M Glass - Aldinga Beach
  • G Kennelly – Willunga

We are currently collating the data and the next step is to identify the themes and priorities from the feedback collected, and how these will help shape council's 10-year community plan and other key plans and strategies.

Once we have a draft community plan in mid-2024 we will seek your feedback on the draft before presenting it to Council for approval.

Background information

The City of Onkaparinga is about to start shaping its 10-year community plan and we want to hear your vision for the future.

Our annual community survey provides an opportunity for residents to tell us what matters to them, how connected they feel to their community, how they stay active, their thoughts on the local economy and more.

Survey responses provide us with a snapshot of our community and helps track changes and trends that shape the future of our region. You can also win one of four $500 vouchers. To enter, simply complete the survey below and add your details at the end.

Prizes will be drawn on 8 November and winners will be notified by email or phone.

The $500 vouchers can be your choice of a:

  • membership at our aquatic and recreation centres (one pass accesses all centres)
  • stay in one of our tourist parks
  • shopping voucher

Full terms and conditions are available to view here.

The survey takes 10 minutes and is open until Sunday 5 November.

During the six-week engagement period we’re also asking the community what their vision for the region’s future is. The question form is available at council offices, libraries, community and youth centres, recreation centres, and selected events.

Responses from the survey and vision questionnaire will also be used to inform reviews of two other key strategic documents—the council’s Long Term Financial Plan, which guides long-term financial sustainability; and Strategic Asset Management Plan, which helps ensure appropriate infrastructure is in place for current and future generations.

The three draft plans are scheduled to be released for community engagement in April 2024.

We will be out and about across the city speaking with the community and capturing feedback.

Staff are available to assist you at any of our libraries, community, youth and recreation centres.

We can't wait to hear from you!
