Roads are the biggest issue in the south-west, new research has revealed. The condition and maintenance of council-owned roads returned the lowest scores across the region in the 2019 local government community satisfaction survey.

The state-wide survey, run by the state government, saw a minimum of 400 interviews undertaken within each municipality.

Survey respondents were asked to rate council performance on a five-point scale.

Residents across Moyne Shire, Glenelg Shire, Southern Grampians Shire and Corangamite Shire rated roads the lowest.

Warrnambool City Council will not publish its results until July 15, over five weeks later than other south-west councils, as it has not yet briefed council.

So just how happy are south-west residents with their councils?
