The 2010 London Survey results

BBC London's Marc Ashdown has pointed us towards the Greater London Authority's 2010 London Survey, which asks 1,500 Londoners how they feel about life in the capital.

In summary:
  • Four-fifths of Londoners (83%) are satisfied with London as a city to live – the highest recorded level of satisfaction.
  • Four-fifths (85%) are satisfied with their neighbourhood as a place to live
  • Three quarters (76%) of Londoners feel safe when walking outside alone in their neighbourhood in the evening
  • Satisfaction with the way their area is policed is at its highest level since 2004 with approaching two-thirds (63%) of Londoners saying they are very or fairly satisfied
  • The proportion of Londoners very or fairly worried about crime has fallen from 59% in 2006 to 43% in 2010
  • Fear of burglary is the main reason Londoners feel unsafe (42%)
  • On transport, Londoners are most likely to think that roads in London need improving (42%) followed by buses (19%) and then the Underground (18%)
  • 43% want to see a reduction in traffic congestion
  • 70% of people feel very or fairly safe using local buses at night compared to just 56% in 2002
  • 66% of Londoners agree that the Olympics will be good for the capital compared to 57% in 2009
There's loads of stuff in there, which we haven't had time to sift, but if you spot anything particularly pertinent, please let us know.
