'Crime, congestion and public transport need addressing' say Droitwich residents

Harry Leach 2nd Jan, 2020

WYCHAVON District Council has vowed to tackle congestion, crime, public transport, litter and recycling after people voted for those as their priority issues in the latest residents’ survey.

More than 1,140 responded to the questionnaire which the authority uses to focus its resources with a new four-year plan scheduled for March.

According to the survey, 87 per cent of residents said they were satisfied with Wychavon’s parks, open spaces and recycling service.

The results also showed that 59 per cent of people rated the council as ‘good’ or ‘very good’ and 55 per cent agreed the council ‘provided value for money’.

Leader of the council, Coun Bradley Thomas, said this was the first time the council had developed and run the survey itself, which meant it was able to canvass wider public opinion, particularly of those 35 and under. .
