New security fencing is just one of the things that have led to residents in Bath to rate their happiness of with their local area highly.

A survey by housing association Somer found that the average happiness rate of people with living in their areas was 81 per cent, reported This Is Bath.

One resident in particular praised the safety provided by the security fence around the communal gardens, a popular place for children to enjoy playing.

Speaking to the newspaper, Lisa Niewald said: "I feel that Better Places gives residents a positive feeling about where they live. For the trust to be putting in the effort to make our neighbourhoods better gives me a great feeling and in general gives the whole neighbourhood a better vibe."

Other measures to improve the area include deploying undercover operations in the "most serious" antisocial behaviour cases.

The Somer's Better Places campaign has received some 300 suggestions from tenants living in its 10,000 houses, of which 130 have been implemented with a further 99 currently in development.

In 1987 the entire city of Bath was inscribed as a world heritage site.
