An important aspect of facilitating relevant, beneficial initiatives and services is the Playford Business Survey. Run once a year, the survey is designed to engage and gather information from the local business community to help us improve our business support service, identify business needs, concerns or issues, and gain feedback on current levels of support to ensure we deliver quality services that meet the needs of our business community.

The Playford Business Survey provides local businesses with an opportunity to have their say on their interactions with the City of Playford and their satisfaction with Council’s business services. Responses and feedback from the survey are used to introduce and enhance beneficial initiatives and services, and ensure we are providing the best possible support for our business community.

There is no doubt that 2020 has been a tumultuous year for businesses, with COVID-19 and the subsequent economic crisis. We want to hear how this has impacted your business, and what we can do as a Council to support you through the next year.
