About this Consultation

The Place Survey was carried out to capture local peoples’ views, experiences and perceptions of Bournemouth.  This is a statutory survey that must be carried out by all local authorities every 2 years.

It is also a way of tracking people’s changing perceptions of their local area, as a way of determining whether interventions result in the right outcomes for local people – ie do people feel happier, healthier, safer?

The Place Survey supplies the data by which a number of national indicators are measured. The national indicators measure how well Governments’ priorities, as set out in the Comprehensive Spending Review, are being delivered by local government and local government partnerships over the next three years.  The Place Survey provides a set of national indicators which are common to all areas. 

In addition to the statutory Place Survey, two discussion groups were carried out.  One with local Black & Minority Ethnic group residents and the other with local residents with a range of disabilities who may be under-represented in the 2,598 responses received from the main survey.

The discussion groups focused on the key priorities highlighted in the main survey.  They particularly focused on issues that BME respondents and those with a disability said that they held different views on than White British respondens and those without a disability.

The results of the analysis of the Place Survey by different equality groups can be seen in the Equality & Diversity Report.

The attached CIPFA benchmarking report shows the published headline results for Bournemouth alongside national unitary authority average scores.  It compares Bournemouth Borough Council with a 'nearest neighbours set', which is a list of authorities developed by CIPFA that are statistically similar to Bournemouth.

The DOTS Disability report details the discussion that took place at the disability focus group held on 8 May 2009.  The report includes feedback comments from the Council.

The BME focus group report is also attached.

Further results were released by CLG in September 2009. 

A number of Place Survey inidcators have also been mapped across the country.
