City of Canning wants to hear from you during Community Safety Month

01 October 2020
This October, during Community Safety Month, Canning residents, business owners, workers and visitors are being asked to have their say on safety in the City of Canning.

The City is holding a series of meet and greet events at local libraries, shopping centres, schools, senior centres and at Kent Street Weir Park to engage with community members and understand their safety priorities.

At each of the events, the City is encouraging as many people as possible to fill out a quick survey, which will help to evaluate the current Community Safety and Crime Prevention Plan 2016-2020 and guide the upcoming Safe Canning Strategy 2021-2025.

The survey is also available online or in hard copy form, for those who can’t make it to one of the meet and greet events.

Once developed, the new Strategy will provide the City with an overview of current community safety issues, make recommendations for future projects and initiatives, and allow Council to make informed decisions about community safety priorities.

City of Canning Mayor Patrick Hall encouraged residents, workers and visitors alike to participate in the survey.

“There’s nothing more important than feeling safe and secure in your home and neighbourhood, and as a City we want to do all we can to provide peace of mind to our residents, business owners and visitors,” said Mayor Hall.

“By having your say in the survey you’ll be helping us create a safer and more welcoming City, so please come and have a chat to the team or jump online – it only takes a few minutes of your time.”

Details of the meet and greet events and the 2020 Community Safety Survey can be found at www.yoursaycanning.com.au with submissions closing at 5pm on 31 October. Participants will go in the draw to win a $100 Visa gift card.

For further information or to request a hard copy of the Survey, please contact the City’s Safe Communities team on 1300 422 664.
