Public perception of services in London is trailing behind the rest of the country in almost every area, a survey from the Association of London Government has revealed.
Results from 27 boroughs showed satisfaction with cleanliness, waste collection and recycling between 11% and 19% lower than the national average. But satisfaction with sports and leisure facilities, museums and galleries, and theatres and concert halls lagged only slightly behind.
Satisfaction was level with the rest of the country on parks and open spaces. London was ahead on public transport information, with a satisfaction rating of 22% compared to 3% nationally.
Overall, Londoners were pleased with services. Fifty two percent were very or fairly satisfied, compared with 21% who were fairly or very dissatisfied. Outer London performed slightly better than inner London.
Launching the research, Barnet LBC leader Alan Williams (Lab) said: 'The [survey] will make it possible for individual councils to gauge their results against other councils before the DETR publish national results.'
