85% of Bracknell residents happy with the town
A RESIDENTS' survey to help shape council strategy has revealed that there should be more focus on the town centre regeneration.
Statistics and data from Bracknell Forest Council Residents Survey were presented to the council's executive committee on Tuesday, with the strongest result - mentioned by a fifth of those surveyed - being that more should be done to speed up Bracknell's redevelopment.
In relation to this, 14% of respondents indicated that there should be better maintenance of public areas.
About one in 10 (13%) of those who completed the survey said more should be done to improve the maintenance and infrastructure of the borough's roads.
Figures also uncovered that nearly a third (30%) of residents agreed they could influence decisions in their local area, while 28% said they do volunteering work at least once a month.
Three out of every five respondents said they were satisfied with the way the council is run and 85% said they were happy with Bracknell as a place to live.
Of the 5,109 who responded, 34% agreed that the borough has a low level of crime, compared to 19% in the 2008 survey.
The survey response rate was 11% of Bracknell people.

And what will they do with this data? Absolutely nothing. Itís just another waste of tax payerís money to get them the answers they already know yet they will shove it on a spread sheet until the next time they feel like asking us what we think to waste a bit more money.
