The Place Survey 2008/09 - Results

South Derbyshire is a safe, happy and healthy place to live.  The findings were revealed in the Place Survey, a major consultation carried out by local authorities across England every two years. The results of the survey provide a snapshot of public opinion and satisfaction with life in the District.

Between September and December 2008, 1616 households in our District took part in the nationwide Place Survey. The survey sought their views on a range of issues in their area – from community safety and local public services, to how involved people feel in local decision-making.

National results for the Place Survey were published by the Audit Commission and Communities and Local Government on 23 June 2009 to report how residents’ satisfaction varies between areas across England.

The results from the place survey provide information on residents views on a variety of topics, which shows where improvements are required. The results also inform 18 National Indicators. Central Government uses these to measure local authority performance.
