UnhideHide About your local area - important features

Theme : Perception Surveys | Sub Theme : Place Survey

  • DescriptionQ1 Thinking generally, which of the things below would you say are most important in making somewhere a good place to live?
  • Headline FindingsIn terms of quality of life; crime, clean streets, health and housing remain the most important things in making somewhere a good place to live. In terms of the aspects that most need improving in Sandwell; activities for teenagers, clean streets, the level of crime, road and pavement repairs, and job prospects all feature highly.
    The key areas in Sandwell which residents score above average on both importance and in need of improvement are the level of crime and clean streets, which is consistent with previous survey results.

UnhideHide About your local area - satisfaction - NI005 & NI038

Theme : Perception Surveys | Sub Theme : Place Survey

  • DescriptionResponses to the questions which ask NI005-how satisfied respondents are with the area as a place to live, NI138 - and with their home and area as a place to live (respondents aged over 65)
  • Headline FindingsNI 5 (overall satisfaction) has seen an improvement since the last Local Govt. User Satisfaction Survey in 2006/07. Overall, 62% of respondents are satisfied with their local area (compared with 60% in 2006/07).
    * key groups who are more likely to be dissatisfied include younger adults, BME groups, and those in West Bromwich and Smethwick.
    Despite the improvement, Sandwell ranks third worst out of all Metropolitan (Mets) and London Boroughs on this indicator.
    Residents were also asked about satisfaction with their home as a place to live. The majority (82%) are satisfied with their home, with just one in ten (nine per cent) dissatisfied.
    NI 138 combines the satisfaction scores of residents aged over 65 with the local area and with their home. Generally, older residents tend to be more positive than their younger counterparts, and this is true in Sandwell. Satisfaction with the home
    increases to 90% for over 65s (from an average of 82%) and satisfaction with the area increases to 76% (from 62% overall). This provides an overall NI score on this measure of 72%.

Theme : Perception Surveys | Sub Theme : ASB & Liveability Survey

  • DescriptionResponses to the questions which ask about satisfaction with Sandwell Council keeping public land in its control free of litter and refuse; satisfaction with various aspects of the litter picking service; and satisfaction with street and town centre cleanliness.
  • Headline FindingsThe 2009 survey found that most residents find the cleanliness standard in their street and local town centre to be average or better.
    * Satisfaction with borough cleanliness decreases with age to some extent - with those rating services as poor or very poor increasing with age.
    * Residents in Rowley Regis are most likely to be satisfied with the way the Council has kept all open public land clear of litter and refuse.
    * There is wide variation across the towns in terms of the four aspects of borough cleanliness. Wednesbury residents are most likely to rate litter picking services highly, whilst those in Rowley Regis rate street cleanliness highly.
    * Smethwick residents rate their local street cleanliness particularly poorly - and we have also seen that litter and fly-tipping are particular concerns for these residents.
    * West Bromwich residents are most likely to rate the cleanliness standard of their local town centre poorly.

Theme : Perception Surveys | Sub Theme : ASB & Liveability Survey

  • DescriptionResponses to the question which asks if environmental related issues are a problem.
  • Headline FindingsThe 2009 survey found that litter remains the largest environmental concern that our residents find to be a problem, although there has been a slight fall in the level of concern over the last year.
    * The level of concern with environmental issues rises towards middle age, and then falls again - the highest concerns being amongst those aged between 35 and 44.
    * It is people living in Smethwick who are most likely to say litter is a very or fairly big problem. Smethwick residents are also concerned about fly tipping - suggesting that problems with litter need to be addressed in the town. This was also the case in 2008.
    * With the exception of vandalism/graffiti (which is marginally higher in West Bromwich), all environmental issues are of the greatest concern in Smethwick.

    * Residents of Smethwick feel less well informed about our efforts to tackle anti-social behaviour, whilst those in Wednesbury feel relatively well informed. This links closely with the satisfaction levels apparent in these towns - those who feel better informed are more satisfied.

Theme : Perception Surveys | Sub Theme : ASB & Liveability Survey

  • DescriptionResponses to the questions which ask about satisfaction with the local area as a place to live; whether the neighbourhood has got better or worse in the last 12 months; whether people of different backgrounds get on well in the area; safety outside in daylight or after dark; and reasons why people don't go out alone after dark.
  • Headline FindingsThe 2009 survey found that satisfaction with neighbourhoods has fallen since the previous survey, however just over 86% of respondents overall express satisfaction with their local area.
    * Although satisfaction with the town they live in is relatively high across the Borough, Smethwick stands out as a notable exception.
    Around one in seven respondents felt that their neighbourhood had improved in the last twelve months, whilst 26% of residents surveyed felt their neighbourhood had got worse.
    * Those in Tipton and Oldbury are far less likely to think that their neighbourhood has got better over the last twelve months than residents of other towns. Rowley Regis and West Bromwich fair much better on this indicator.
    The majority of residents believe that people from different backgrounds in their neighbourhood get on well together.
    * People living in Oldbury are most likely to feel that people from different backgrounds in their neighbourhood get on well together.
    Around 90% of respondents told us that they feel safe walking in their neighbourhood during daylight.
    * Of all the towns, people in West Bromwich feel the least safe walking alone in their neighbourhood when it's dark, with only 44% of respondents saying they feel very or fairly safe. This compares with just over 48% in Wednesbury and Rowley Regis. This variation is not as wide as in past years.
    * Two out of five of people who don't walk alone after dark, said it was because they were too scared to go out.
    * Smethwick residents were most likely to say they don't go out alone at night because they are too scared to. West Bromwich residents are least likely to need to go out.

Theme : Perception Surveys | Sub Theme : ASB & Liveability Survey

  • DescriptionResponses to the questions which ask if respondents are satisfied with efforts to tackle ASB in Sandwell, and if they are aware of various ASB services in the Borough.
  • Headline FindingsThe 2009 survey found that around 60% of residents are satisfied with the Council, Police & other organisations' efforts to tackle anti-social behaviour, compared to 61% in the September 2008 survey.
    * These satisfaction levels are closely linked to how well informed people feel about our efforts to tackle ASB. Around 90% of those respondents who feel very or fairly well informed are satisfied with organisations' efforts to tackle ASB in Sandwell. This compares with only 39% of those who say they are not very well informed, and 23% who are not well informed at all.
    * Over 60% of Wednesbury and Rowley Regis residents are satisfied with our efforts to tackle anti-social behaviour, whilst those in Smethwick are least satisfied.
    * With the exception of Drug Concern and the Warden Service, people living in Smethwick are least likely to have heard of the ASB services provided in the borough, which perhaps explains the relatively low levels of satisfaction with our efforts in this area.
