What’s your town care factor?

Data consultant Place Score will survey Moruya, Narooma, Bodalla and Tilba residents over the coming weeks to find out how they feel about their town or village.

The Eurobodalla Council project, funded by NSW Government, is a first step in understanding community values that can be used to prioritise future town planning and investment for the whole shire.

Council’s strategic planner Nathan Farnell said Moruya, Narooma, Bodalla and Central Tilba were selected because they had been directly or indirectly impacted by the recent bushfires and community data from the north of the shire had already been collected this year through other projects.

“This project has been made possible through bushfire recovery funding received from the state government and is an important step in building community resilience and strengthening the local economies of Moruya, Narooma, Bodalla and Central Tilba,” he said.

“We have recently collected community data for Batemans Bay and Mogo through other projects, including the Batemans Bay waterfront masterplan and activation strategy and Mogo Village Rebuild project, and we have less data on the values from communities in the south of the shire to guide future work.”

Residents can take part by completing a brief ‘Care Factor’ survey online at The consultancy will also visit Moruya, Narooma, Bodalla and Tilba townships between 27-29 August to conduct in-person street surveys.

Once collected, the data will be added to the information gathered from the shire’s northern communities to inform the review of Council’s Community Strategic Plan and guide the preparation of future town and village planning strategies.
