Fewer satisfied with Council – admits Gateshead

A survey of residents by Gateshead Council has found fewer are satisfied with the overall level of service provided by the authority. The figures show a drop of 8% since the last survey 3 years ago.

All Councils are required to carry out satisfaction surveys once every three years. In 2003/4, the survey showed 70% of people were satisfied overall with the level of service provided by Gateshead. This has dropped to 62%.

In addition, those taking part in the survey want the Council to do more to provide activities for young people. In 2003/4, 41% of people were calling for action. No the figure has risen to 50%.
