Between March and May 2018, some 3,349 randomly selected Housing Services tenants were invited to take part in the STAR survey and 1,051 responded, this represented 31% response rate. The survey focused on how satisfied Dudley MBC Housing tenants are with the way we deliver our key housing services. The survey was confidential and carried out by an independent market research company – Acuity Research & Practice.
Carrying out this survey is just part of the work Dudley MBC Housing Services does to involve our tenants in developing services. As well as publishing the results of the survey, Dudley MBC Housing Services plans to put the findings to good use by working with tenants to further improve the services we provide. Please see the summary of findings.
Thank you again to those who responded, your feedback is very important to us.
During Dudley Housing's Big Conversation road show in July 2017 over 130 people visited the campervan video diary room to record their views about where they live in response to questions about what people liked best about their area and what they would change.
We have now uploaded a video to YouTube, called Dudley Housing’s Big Conversation, which captures these comments.
The draft dogs policy consultation on ownership of dogs in council and leasehold properties has now closed. Thank you to those who took part.
