The Boroondara Council carried out a survey to determine the popularity of the idea by mailing over 3,500 of the residents to be affected by the extension to the Council to Balwyn suburbs. Majority of respondent residents are not popular with the plan. Most of the residents have some information about the proposal but are not able to. For instance Patricia O'Dwyer, the Balwyn Historical Society secretary also opposed the proposal.

Balwyn residents are not totally supportive of the proposal because they are concerned on the possible impact of the change of boundaries and hence the jurisdiction regions and also the resultant impact of the proposal. Balwyn Historical Society has also opposed the ideas of having the Balwyn Suburban included into the Baroondara Council.

According to the society, the Balwyn suburban gained its popularity from the Andrew Murray's property Balwyn, which is on the west of the Balwyn Road and thus not among the areas which have been earmarked for inclusion into the larger Boroondara Council.
