UnhideHide Reputation 2011: Satisfaction with Council services

Theme : Perception Surveys | Sub Theme : My Council

  • DescriptionResults of the annual "My Council" reputation roadshow. This section relates to the questions on satisfaction with various council services.
  • Headline FindingsSatisfaction with council services varies. Around two thirds of respondents are satisfied with waste and recycling collections and bin collections, something which increases with age. Satisfaction with the cleanliness of streets was lower at 41%. Whilst lots of people said the parks and open spaces were one of the things they liked about Sandwell, and many people mentioned the recent improvements in parks, when asked how satisfied they were with parks and open spaces just over half (53%) of respondents said they were satisfied. 62% of respondents are satisfied with libraries, a proportion which increases with age. Conversely, satisfaction with sports and leisure services, which now stands at 47%, decreases with age. These levels of satisfaction are likely to be influenced by whether or not respondents use the service, with users likely to have a higher level of satisfaction compared to non users. Two services in particular stand out because they have a negative net satisfaction score i.e. more people are dissatisfied with the service than satisfied. These services are the removal of dog fouling (-13% net satisfaction) and highways maintenance (potholes) (-24% net satisfaction).
