Traffic and job prospects are worse but residents are satisfied, says report

John Balson

A majority of householders think traffic and job prospects have got worse but most are still satisfied with life in the area, a survey has found.

It also discovered more than 60 per cent were satisfied with the council's work and about 85 per cent with its green spaces and rubbish collection.

Nearly 1,000 residents answered the independent survey, which was commissioned by the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and carried out in the last financial year.

Libraries and theatres were thought to have improved the most while 75 per cent thought job prospects had shown the most decline followed by traffic congestion on about 65 per cent.

About 45 per cent thought the council was providing value for money.

Elsewhere, 50 per cent thought crime had increased even though overall perceptions of anti-social behaviour, drunk behaviour and drug dealing were all down.
