Adelaide Plains Council strives to use the best methods to communicate with the community. With the emergence of digital media, Council wishes to find out how many people in its region use digital technologies e.g. Council's Website, Social Media, Email.

It is becoming expensive for Council to continue printing media for the community. An example of this expenditure is Council’s Newsletter (“The Communicator”) which, after the previous distribution, cost the Council in excess of $7000.

Your response will be used as the decision for Council for the next two years.

Submissions for the survey will be accepted until 30 January 2018 at 5:00PM

Completed surveys can be returned to one of Adelaide Plains Council’s Offices; Mallala Office or the Two Wells Service Centre. Alternatively, you can post your response to PO Box 18, Mallala SA 5502 or complete the survey online at
