First Annual Pine Rivers Survey Identifies Key Issues


State Member for Pine Rivers, Mr Seath Holswich, has thanked Pine Rivers residents for their response to the first annual Pine Rivers Survey.

"I was pleased that several hundred residents took the time to complete the survey and identify the issues that are important to them," Mr Holswich said.

Mr Holswich has already begun to analyse the responses to find out what issues are most important to Pine Rivers residents.

"60 percent of respondents listed cost of living as one of the three most important issues to them. Law and order followed closely with 58 percent listing it in their top three."

"Within law and order, issues such as hooning and home invasions get regular mentions as crimes of particular concern."

Mr Holswich will analyse the data fully over the next couple of months and will publish a summary report of the results in early 2013.

"The responses given to the survey will help to shape my priorities in 2013 and beyond."

"It is important that an elected representative listens to their community and along with my mobile offices, online office and regular attendance of community events, this survey is a valuable tool to help me keep in touch with my community."

All respondents to the survey went in the draw for two prizes of $150 worth of gift vouchers to local businesses. The winners of these prizes, from Lawnton and Warner, have been advised of their win. They will be presented with their prizes next week.
