Residents’ Perception Survey Autumn 2016

Closed 28 Nov 2016

Opened 9 Nov 2016


The council is currently conducting a Residents’ Perception Telephone Survey with a sample of 500 residents from across the borough. The survey asks residents for their views on local services and various aspects of life in their local area.

The council has commissioned Westco Ltd., an independent market research company, to conduct this survey. To ensure a cross section of Barnet's population is represented, Westco use a randomly selected sample of landlines from their own held database, as well as purchasing lists from other commercially available sources. Barnet has not provided any customer contact details for this research. The sample is set to quota in terms of age, gender, ethnicity and housing tenure to ensure the achieved sample is representative of Barnet's population.

The council has also commissioned Westco Ltd. to conduct a face-to-face Young People’s Perception Survey with a sample of 500 young residents aged 11-18 from across the borough. You can find out more about the Young People’s Survey here.

Why We Are Consulting

The council and its partners want to know how you feel about your local area and how you feel we are doing in delivering local services.

The survey is administered twice a year so that we can monitor our performance and make improvements in order to continue to deliver excellent services.

What Happens Next

The survey has now closed.

We would like to thank the 500 residents who took part in the telephone survey, without whose valuable input the survey would not have been possible. The findings from this research are being used to look at how well Barnet Council and its partners are doing in delivering services that matter to you and where improvements can be made in the future.
