Business survey to measure commercial confidence

Eurobodalla Council is keen to hear from local business owners through an online survey that will help Council tailor its business support programs.

Council is asking business owners to complete a short, confidential online questionnaire that asks how they are feeling about their business, now and for the future.

Council’s economic development and place activation manager Teresa Lever said the results would be used alongside quantitative data to provide a full picture of local commercial confidence.

“We receive a wealth of data and statistics, including for local spending, employment and national economic profiling, but hearing directly from our local business owners is so important,” she said.

“The survey will let us know whether business sentiment corresponds with the data and will also help us ensure businesses are receiving the support they need.”

Ms Lever said people could not be identified by completing the survey – all they needed to provide was a postcode and their business sector.

“We’ll be doing this survey every two years to analyse local issues, trends and potential areas for Council action,” Ms Lever said.

“Aggregated survey results will be available on Council’s website on completion of the survey. These results will feed into Council’s future business capacity building programs, and also gauge business recovery and resilience post bushfires and COVID-19.”
