The proportion of people who feel safe walking Hounslow's streets at night has risen by 50% since 2008, new figures suggest.
A survey carried out for Hounslow Council showed 60% of people now feel safe after dark, compared to just 40% seven years ago.
The percentage of people who feel safe in the borough during the day rose from 80 to 91% during the same period.
However, rolling figures show crime has risen by 4% in the borough during the last 12 months.
Just under 1,300 residents responded to the residents' survey, which was carried out by BMG Research in September and October last year and published in November.
The crime figures were highlighted in the council's quarterly monitoring report at the cabinet meeting on Tuesday (March 17).
The report found litter was the biggest bugbear when it came to antisocial behavior, with 51% of respondents describing it as a problem. The next biggest issue was "groups hanging around the streets", which prompted complaints from 40% of people.
The survey also found more than four fifths (82%) of people were happy with Hounslow as a place to live, and 67% were satisfied with the council's performance.
