Perceptions of Safety

Council's latest Annual Community Satisfaction Survey (2020) found that a higher number of respondents feel safe in public areas of Wyndham during the day when compared to at night. Two-thirds of respondents felt very safe in the public areas of the City of Wyndham during the day, a result that has been very consistent over time, and 21.9% felt “unsafe”. This result is likely to have been impacted, in part, by the COVID-19 pandemic

Council embraces every opportunity to partner with the State Government and Victoria Police to improve safety in public places.

Recent examples of this are:

  • The instillation of lighting through Eureka Drive Park, connecting the Wyndham Vale Train Station through to connecting paths;
  • Wyndham Street Parties - a pilot program running from March 2019 to March 2020 that saw residents host get-togethers in their streets. Along with benefits such as building friendships and making new connections with immediate neighbours, street parties contribute to safer streets. The better we know our neighbours, the safer our street will become.

Council have also completed a number of public space upgrades to promote connectedness and safety in public areas, such as the Wyndham Park project, and the commissioning of the Hoppers Junction Wall Mural.
