Residents tell the Council it has delivered

I have spent some time today looking at the results of the Council’s residents’ survey. You can see the whole thing here.

Very early in our administration we set three priorities:

  • cleaner streets
  • safer communities
  • value for money.

As a result my eyes were drawn to this table right at the end of the document. It shows the top four concerns expressed by residents by year.

It shows that the Council has succeeded in making a difference in all three areas as measured by residents’ perceptions.

  • concern about litter/dirt on streets has step-by-step gone down from 30% to 20%
  • concern about crime has gone down from above 40% to below 30%
  • concern about the level of the council tax has slumped dramatically from 40% to 16%.

Who are these residnts who are polled?

How are they selected?

I don’t know anyone who has been polled.

I’m not invalidating the poll results per se I’d just like to be reassured as to the randomness of the popuation sample polled.

I would like you to give up perceptions for Lent. Instead you could give us facts. But please – in their entirety – and in context.

Facts about crime – the stats – show crime is up.
