“Home Stretch” Survey Data 2023

As it has been some time in restoration and even more time since those first community planning meetings, we undertook a survey to get some feedback on current activity and planned activity in the Milang Lakeside Butter Factory. The steering committee can use this feedback to assist in prioritising our way forward in development of social enterprise in the factory and in the fit-out stages of certain areas in the factory ready for use.

While there are a number of opportunities and already some activities happening at the factory, this in no way suggests things will or will not happen. This report is purely presented to give the raw feedback from those surveys (minus any names and personal contact info etc).
