MB+ Customer Service Initiatives

The Planning and Economic Development Division has been working hard on a range of initiatives to improve our customer service and experience. We are therefore proud to launch our MB+  Customer Service Initiative - aligning our products and services to our customers’ expectations.

This commitment commenced in 2015 with an inaugural customer survey which interviewed a sample of over 190 randomly selected customers. This feedback informed a range of new MB+ initiatives that have over the course of 2016 been implemented to respond directly to this and ongoing customer feedback. The survey findings and the customer driven initiatives delivered as a direct result, are contained in our Customer Survey Newsletter and Customer Commitment Report 1 [PDF 1.1MB].

As a result of the 2015 feedback we have established and now published measurable and meaningful performance targets to continually improve overall customer satisfaction levels and performance accountability. These benchmarks are set out in the Division’s Customer Service Charter [PDF 300KB]which will continually evolve year on year as performance objectives are achieved and in response to ongoing customer feedback. You are welcome to provide direct feedback by using our online feedback anytime you would like.

We are excited and proud to stand by our commitment to our customers and continue to look for ways to improve our service delivery
