HOW do you rate your quality of life on the Central Coast?

According to a Central Coast Council survey, 91 per cent of residents rate their quality of life as “good to excellent”.

The council has released community survey findings, which will go towards development of its first ever Community Strategic Plan.

Council’s connected communities director Julie Vaughan said the surveys followed on from the initial engagement where council received more than 33,000 ideas and opinions about what would make the Coast a better place to live.

“The community was asked to rate their overall quality of life living on the Central Coast with 91 per cent of survey respondents saying they had ‘good’, ‘very good’ or ‘excellent’ quality of life, which is fantastic for the Coast,” she said.

Ms Vaughan said quality of life appeared to trend upwards with age and was impacted by location of residence, employment status, level of education and home ownership.

“Lifestyle and community, including attributes such as safety, sense of community and opportunities to participate in community life were the key drivers of quality of life,” she said.

Coasties identified transport and movement around the Coast as top issues to be addressed over the next 10 years.

During the survey, council approached over 1200 community members and key stakeholders through a phone survey, community workshops and meetings.

Mayor Jane Smith said the community strategic plan would be a “true representation of what our community think, feel, want and value”.

The draft Community Strategic Plan will be going on exhibition in April.
