In June 2015 Council conducted it's first ever Community Wellbeing Survey to help identify the ways in which Council can promote the health and wellbeing of all residents and create a healthy community for people who live, work and visit Lane Cove. The survey is repeated every 2 years to ascertain changes and trends.
In 2021, Council promoted the Australian Liveability Census, an online survey designed to capture community values and measure performance from the perspective of the communities who live in the neighbourhood.
The results are in and drumroll please... Lane Cove's score was the equal highest score across the nation! Tied with Adelaide, our score was well above the national average.
The results showed us that our strengths are a sense of personal safety; local businesses that provide for daily needs; elements of the natural environment; landscaping/natural elements; access to neighbourhood amenities; and a sense of belonging in the community.
While many of us already recognise the wonderful community we live in, it is fantastic to see that our fellow residents also love where they live.
In July 2019, Council conducted its third Community Wellbeing
Survey with the findings published in a report. Results show that the Wellbeing index remains high at
74.8. Any score above 60 means that most people reported positive views
about their personal and community wellbeing. An infographic provides a snapshot of the findings from the survey.
The second Community Wellbeing Survey was conducted in June 2017 and a report prepared. Results showed that the Wellbeing Index remained high at 75.
