The recent City Tracker survey has shown that there is a high level of satisfaction with Brighton and Hove and the local area as a place to live, particularly amongst 35-44 year olds. The level of satisfaction with the local area as a place to live remains higher than national statistics.
In the third wave of the City Tracker survey, 1,000 residents city wide were interviewed over the phone.
The survey was commissioned by Brighton & Hove Local Strategic Partnership to find out what residents think of Brighton and Hove as a place to live, and to track how satisfied people are with key services.
The survey found that the greatest concern for people in relation to their street was still road safety (as found in previous waves). In relation to issues affecting their street, residents were most satisfied with the level of noise in their street (84% of people interviewed stated they were satisfied).
Results also showed that 77% of people interviewed were satisfied with how clean and green their street is; and that 75% of people interviewed were satisfied with how well the council looks after their street.
Tony Mernagh, Executive Director of the Economic Partnership and Chair of the Strategic Partnership, said:
“The City Tracker survey is important because it highlights where residents feel improvements should be made, so key service providers can prioritise accordingly.”
Cllr Jason Kitcat, leader of Brighton & Hove City Council, said:
“These results show we’re on the right track. Brighton & Hove is a great place to live and through the City Tracker we know satisfaction levels with the services we provide are good. In a tough economic climate we will continue to work hard to provide efficient, value for money services which meet the city’s needs.”
