Blackwood Redevelopment-Community Needs Survey 2017

The Blackwood Redevelopment - Community Needs Survey 2017 is based on results of an earlier survey conducted by the Blackwood Business Network in 2012 to identify infrastructure and community needs and preferences for the redevelopment of the commercial precinct. It also incorporates recommendations from previous studies conducted by Council, Council's Strategic Plan, the 30 Year Greater Adelaide Plan and two concept plans conducted by Urban Design Professionals. We wish to update the survey results to reflect the community needs of our current population.

Your input is valuable and much appreciated. Thank you for your time in completing this survey.
