'No rubbish dumping, no litter, no need for ASBOs, no parking enforcement. This would enable us to redirect funds to services.'

Inga Hutton

Streetscene strategy manager, environment directorate,

Hackney LBC

'One in which both young and old have a mutual understanding of one another and confidence in one another's actions.'

Ian Wilson

Head of performance and development, corporate services

Darlington BC

'A respectful society would mean one

where everyone has a voice - even young people who wear

hooded tops.'

Gill Steward

Director of corporate services and resources, Bracknell Forest BC

'Respect in society comes from respect in the family. We seem to be losing the work ethic - replaced by a 'quick fix' to everything society.'

Gordon Hector

Emergency manager, Bath & North East Somerset Council

'A more respectful society will equal less expenditure on public services. Local government can help balance this through community engagement'

Guy Holloway

Performance improvement manager, Kettering BC

'One where greater consideration is given to the views and culture of others as well as the environment in which we live.'

Gareth Moss

Head of resource and financial management, East Staffordshire BC
