Measuring our community’s perceptions of liveability in their local area.

How 'liveable' is your neighbourhood? What factors do you consider important in making a place more liveable, and how do you experience those factors?

In council's ongoing efforts to ensure our communities are experiencing the best the coast can offer, a five year study is underway to answer these questions. Community surveys have been conducted in March 2021 and 2022 and will continue through to 2025 to provide a longitudinal study of liveability on the Coast.

The top five items of importance to the community in 2022 regarding liveability were:

  • Access to the natural environment
  • Feeling safe
  • A lack of road congestion
  • A strong sense of community
  • High quality health services

Council will use the findings to monitor the progress of the Environment and Liveability Strategy and Community Strategy, inform council’s Corporate Plan, and to support ongoing advocacy for continuous improvements in the liveability standards of the community.
