1001: Rural residents’ views

This paper is taken from the summary of a report ‘Rural Insights – Resident Survey 2009’ prepared by Ipsos MORI for the Commission for Rural Communities (CRC).

Year of Publication2010

Both urban and rural residents think the overall prosperity of their area is ‘much the same as always’, although those in the rural sparse areas are the most negative about this. There is a strong sense, especially among people in urban and rural sparse areas, that decision-makers lack understanding. Public transport is seen as the highest priority for improving quality of life by those in rural areas and especially those in sparse areas. Housing, job prospects and the state of economy feature strongly among priorities for the future.
