Quality of life in Bromsgrove

Bromsgrove District Council carried out its second Quality of Life Survey (pdf, 292kb) earlier this year to assess how its residents feel about life in the district.

The survey was sent to a random sample of 1500 households and returned a 47% response rate.

The survey sought to understand residents’ views on a range of topics including climate change, recycling, housing, health and community safety. Some of the findings are listed below:

  • 49% stated that promoting recycling was a priority for the council in working to reduce the area’s impact on the environment.
  • 51% of respondents were in favour of more affordable housing being built in the district, but only 30% were in favour of it being built in their area.
  • 77% said that they never or rarely used public transport with 17% using it at least weekly.
  • 62% claimed to be active or very active in terms of physical activity with lack of time the most cited reason for a lack of activity (39%)

The full report (pdf, 292kb) is available on Bromgrove’s website.
