Community Resilience Survey

A more resilient Pyrenees – and a chance for a Christmas holiday bonus             

Pyrenees Shire Council is proud to have recently been awarded a grant from the Federal Government’s Natural Disaster Resilience Grant Scheme for a 12 month project to further enhance the resilience of the municipality.

The planning and consideration for more vulnerable residents within the community leading up to last weekend’s anticipated severe weather highlights demonstrated the resilience already apparent within the Pyrenees. Council is taking a holistic approach to resilience building that aims to further support and nurture existing community characteristics that enhance resilience.

To kick off the project, Council will be conducting a community-wide survey to gauge the level of resilience already apparent within the municipality and identify areas in which we, as a community, can improve. Participants in the survey will go in the draw to win either $500 off their rates or a mini iPad! The survey is  accessible here: until Friday 15th December. If you know of residents that would like to participate in the survey, but do not have access to the internet, printed copies of the survey will be available at the Beaufort Council Offices, Beaufort Resource Centre and the Avoca Resource Centre over the two week period.  Community participation is essential to ensure the success of this project and Council looks forward to your input. If you have any further enquiries, please do not hesitate to contact Laura Buchanan, Community Resilience Project Officer on 0409395910 or

We acknowledge the people past and present of the Wadawurrung, Dja Dja Wurrung, and Djab Wurrung tribes, whose land forms the Pyrenees Shire. We pay our respect to the customs, traditions and stewardship of the land by the elders and people of these tribes.
