Aim

The Council is consulting on a draft Leaseholder and Freeholder Options Policy. The policy provides broad borough-wide principles and commitments to leaseholders and freeholders who own properties in areas designated by the Council for regeneration. It outlines the options available so that leaseholders and freeholders have the opportunity to remain in the local community. The policy provides commitments which are to a large extent provided for by the law, over which the Council has little or no discretion, and commitments over which the Council has some degree of flexibility.

We want to make sure that the policy aligns as closely as possible with the interests, needs and views of the people who are likely to be affected by it and are keen to hear from all interested parties.

Aim

Paper survey and exhibitions to gather views and feedback on possible proposals to improve Sloane Street.

Results

Survey respondents 

Seven in ten (70 per cent) respondents responded to the survey as a resident (either from Kensington and Chelsea (54 per cent) or Westminster (16 per cent)). Whilst 16 per cent of responses came from a local business or retailer and 14 per cent from visitors to the area.

Importance of a range of improvement options

Respondents were asked to indicate how important a range of improvement options were to them in relation to Sloane Street.

Eight out of ten (81 per cent) felt it was important (to some extent) to ‘improve the appearance of the street with high quality paving and street lighting’.

Over three-quarters (78 per cent) felt it was important (to some extent) to ‘introduce more trees and planting’.

Seven in ten (70 per cent) felt it was important (to some extent) to ‘reduce high traffic speeds’, although 27 per cent disagreed.

Almost two-thirds (64 per cent) felt it was important (to some extent) to ‘widen narrow pavements to improve the pedestrian experience’. However, over a third (34 per cent) did not feel this was important.

Overall opinion of the proposals

Overall three quarters of respondents (75 per cent) support (to some extent) the proposals for Sloane Street; this included 51 per cent who ‘strongly support’ the proposals. However, over a fifth (22 per cent) oppose the proposals, including 13 per cent that strongly oppose the proposals.

Preferred option for the central residential section of Sloane Street

Over half (53 per cent) of respondents preferred ‘option 1 – maximum pavement widening’, whilst almost a fifth (18 per cent) preferred ‘option 2 – minimum pavement widening’. However, almost a quarter (24 per cent) indicated that they preferred ‘option 3 – minimal change to the existing layout’.                                  

Preferred style for improvements

Over half (58 per cent) of respondents preferred ‘traditional’ fittings for the street, whilst almost a third (32 per cent) preferred ‘classic contemporary’ fittings. Less than one in ten (eight per cent) preferred ‘modern’ fittings.

Outcome

The report will inform possible improvements to Sloane Street.

Click for more detail Resident Reviewers Project: Council Tax e-forms testing - Phase 2 Corporate Services and Housing 04 Oct 2016 04 Oct 2016
Aim

To gather feedback on two Council Tax electronic forms before their introduction to the Council's website (Moving within the borough, Change of Payment).

Results

Generally Reviewers found the majority of questions in the forms understandable. However, the group had a number of suggestions for improvement, including:

 

Help or explanatory text

There are a number of areas of the forms that would benefit from explanatory text; i.e. further explanation of the information required or why it is required (e.g. formats for dates, sort codes and what ‘Advisor ID’ means).

Advisor details

When completing a form on behalf of someone else the form requests ‘Advisor details’ and ‘Advisor ID’. This confused all Reviewers that encountered this question, with all asking how this section was to be completed. This section of the form requires further thought.

Format of sort code and dates fields

Reviewers were annoyed that the sort code field, and some date fields, did not specify the format that was required for the data to be entered (this was particularly true for bank sort codes).

Movement of the screen when data is entered

After entering address information, the screen often moves from where the Reviewer is entering text to the top of the page. This was frustrating to Reviewers who then had to scroll back to where they had been entering data. Reviewers would like to see the screen remain in its previous position to avoid confusion.

Confirmation screen

Reviewers felt the confirmation screen was poorly laid out and unnecessarily long. This meant that Reviewers had to scroll through many screens in order to check the information they had supplied. Improving the layout would be welcomed and will assist residents in checking the information they have added is correct.
