The results from a resident satisfaction survey have arrived.

Barnet Council conducted a Residents’ Perception Survey in the autumn of 2017.

The survey shows 80 per cent of residents are satisfied with waste collection, street lighting and parks, and road and pavement maintenance.

Sixty-five percent are satisfied with the council.

Crime, the lack of affordable housing and the condition of roads and pavements are the three top concerns.

Cllr Richard Cornelius, leader of Barnet Council, said: “We know that roads and pavements are a priority, so it is good to see that our £50 million investment programme is paying off with satisfaction levels continuing to rise.

“As always, there are areas where we need to focus our attention further and work with our partners to address residents’ concerns.

“We are committed to delivering our housing programme in Barnet with more than 27,000 new homes expected to be built over the next 10 years, including 330 new council-owned homes for rent through Opendoor Homes and 175 extra care new council homes being built by Barnet Homes by 2020.

“This will be supported by the delivery of important community infrastructure such as schools and leisure centres, to ensure new communities thrive.”
