31% say council does not offer value for money

Between September and December 2008, all local authorities across the country were required to conduct a postal survey of residents. 2311 residents in Nottingham were asked their views on local services.

When asked about their local area “7 in 10 residents (mentioned)they were very or fairly satisfied.  This is low compared to the national average of 80%….

Nearly half of residents generally felt they belong to their immediate neighbourhood, although this is lower than the national picture of 59%.

 30% of residents agreed that Nottingham City Council provides value for money, although a similar proportion (31%) disagreed, placing the City below the average for the core cities.

One Response to 31% say council does not offer value for money

  1. Alan-a-dale says:

    If 30% thought the City Council provided value for money and a similar amount thought they didn’t, that means around 40% didn’t know. If they didn’t know whether or not they were getting value for money, I would suggest that’s almost as bad as saying they weren’t.

    It shows a lack of awareness, understanding or appreciation of council services which should raise some serious questions about the council’s engagement and communication with tenants and residents in the city.
