Welwyn Garden City’s Campus West praised in survey – of 2008

SERVICES at Campus West in WGC have been praised by more than 1,000 people in “newly released data”.

However, the survey results just issued by Welwyn Hatfield Council do not rate the 2009 services but the 2008 ones. A council spokeswoman explained to the Welwyn Hatfield Times why the data has taken so long to be made public.

“The survey was carried out throughout January and February 2009, looking back at 2008,” she said.

“The results were then collated and this was then taken to the social overview and scrutiny committee meeting on November 23.

“The reason it took so long is because we did the analysis internally as the data received was huge and required time to analyse to be sure of the results.”
