A friend of yours is going to move into your area, what experiences would you share with them, reassuring them to make this move ?:

It is a wonderful place for families, as there are so many young families here it is feels like you belong straight away. It feels less congested than the city and everyone is friendly. We made friends and settled very quickly.

A friend of yours is going to move into your area, what experiences would you share with them, discouraging them to make this move?:

Lack of doctors at the hospital after hours, basically no emergency department. This is a great concern with so many young families moving here. Not a great choice in retail, Big W would have been such a plus, it is a shame it didn't go ahead.

If there is anything you or others in your community have done to overcome issues in your area, please describe them.:

What were the outcomes of these efforts?:

If one great thing was going to happen in your area next year, what would you want it to be?:

A great retail store like Target or Big W opening.
