Saldanha Bay conducts Sensus and Client Satisfaction Survey

Municipalities should attempt to have sensible and accurate data to assist in driving future development and decision-making processes. Therefore the West Coast District Municipality appointed a service provider (CK Rumboll & Partners) to conduct a sensus and client satisfaction survey in all five local municipalities within the west coast district.

Saldanha Bay Municipality’s survey commenced in Saldanha on Monday, 3 July 2017 and later relocated to Vredenburg on 10 July.  Thereafter the survey will be conducted in Hopefield, Jacobsbaai, Langebaan, Langebaanweg, Paternoster and St Helena Bay.


Fieldworkers can be identified through visible name tags with the official Saldanha Local Municipality Survey 2017 questionnaires. The expected completion date for the client satisfaction survey is 4 August 2017.
