Who Loves Ya, Redbridge?

Last year Redbridge council did a survey on ‘Life in Redbridge’. The results of this survey were used to guide the council’s corporate strategy and to prioritise the services they deliver to us, the residents. It also provided information on where council services needed to be improved. The results are published on Redbridge-i here.

The three main areas for improvement were:
  • road and pavement repair (42 per cent)
  • level of Crime (37 per cent)
  • clean Streets (35 per cent)
Some of the things that have been done are the introduction of a free bulky waste collection scheme which makes it more convenient for residents to dispose of large items and the launch of a high profile campaign highlighting the consequences of fly tipping and promoting the free bulky waste service. Litter and Fly tipping are also included as part of the ongoing Civic Pride and Enforcement review across the Council with the aim of introducing a new uniformed enforcement team, combining a number of teams to make them more effective and equip them with Police powers to tackle the issue and deter those who flout the rules.

So, now is the moment of truth. We now have another survey which will show, amongst other things, what, if any, progress has been made on the improvement areas and also if there are now any other areas that need to be looked at, given the scale of the cuts that have been taking place.

Go to it people and let them have your views, click here to go to this year’s survey. It closes on 2nd September 2015.
