General Comments and Feedback (Q10) were received and are being filtered to remove a number of accusations and comments which are likely to cause offence or harm to individuals. Although this survey was intended to give members of the community of Gladesville a voice, we must ensure that we are fair to people’s reputations. These comments will be provided when we can do so.
