Residents should therefore be aware of the possibility of a visit from a Water and Sanitation Department representative in the coming months.
The survey’s main aims are to gain insight regarding customer requirements and gauge customer satisfaction in terms of what is expected by the customer service charter.
The areas below have been randomly selected from Water and Sanitation Department’s eight administrative districts to form the sample:
· Ocean View (Fish Hoek)
· San Michel
· Marinda Heights· Kleinbron
· Khayelitsha (Graceland and Bongweni areas)
· Mitchells Plain (Woodlands and Colorado areas)
· Milnerton Ridge
· Bishop Lavis
· Epping Forest
· New Rest
· Belgravia (Athlone)
In addition, eight commercial areas will be randomly chosen.
The assessment results will assist in forward planning in that they will:
ascertain an acceptable level of service satisfaction which needs to be achieved and/or maintained
identify any areas needing improvement
uncover any needs not currently being addressed, especially in informal and in business areas
interrogate and evaluate effectiveness of marketing campaigns, and inform communication strategies
