Customer Experience Strategy
Council believes that the experience customers have when engaging with Council goes far beyond the initial interactions with our dedicated Customer Service Team. Rather, Council recognises that all Council employees have a role to play in providing an exceptional customer experience. Therefore, Council developed the Customer Experience Strategy 2022-2026 to focus on its commitment to Customers. This strategy contains an action plan to improve Council’s Customer Experience.
