Despite narrowly missing out on the Telegraph High Street of the Year competition, more people in Teddington think the high street has improved over the past year compared with those who think it has stayed the same or deteriorated according the latest set of satisfaction figures released this week by Richmond Council.

The poll, carried out across the borough in Autumn last year among 1,405 residents, revealed 16% of those taking part in Teddington thought the High Street had improved compared with 8% who thought things had got worse and 75% who thought it had stayed the same.

In other results, satisfaction levels with Council performance ran higher than average in Teddington with 84% saying they were satisfied. This compared with 88% of Mortlake residents saying they were satisfied with the Council and, at the bottom end of the scale, 78% in Whitton and Twickenham.

On average, Teddington residents seem to trust the Council with only 17% of respondents saying they didn't. This compared favourably against Twickenham where more than a quarter (27%) said they did not trust the Council.

When it came to their top three local priorities, roads and pavements topped the list for Teddington residents. Nearly a third (31%) said road maintenance should be addressed while 25% named pavements and 17% said parking services should be a priority.

And, compared to the borough average of 79%, more Teddington residents felt they could impact local decisions made by the Council at 81%.

Overall, Richmond Borough scored higher than average against other London Boroughs when it came to most satisfaction measures except for feeling they were kept informed about Council services and benefits.
