We measure what matters

At Stockland, we know it takes a lot more than bricks and mortar to create a thriving community.

Our annual Liveability Index Survey measures what matters to our residents, so we can design our communities around what’s important.

The Liveability Index Survey invites feedback on all aspects of the community - from quality of built and natural environments, to how its design supports mental and physical wellbeing.

Years of listening to feedback from our residents has helped us shape some of Australia’s most liveable communities, with 83% of Stockland residents telling us they love where they live.

Belonging

Creating spaces where residents can connect lays the foundation for a vibrant community.

Considerable time and thought goes into the planning of parks, playgrounds, streetscapes and shared community spaces to ensure we’re creating a place our residents are proud to come home to. And while our residents are busy enjoying their new homes, our team is hard at work establishing a community environment you can be proud of.* Average responses to the question " Quality of local parks and natural environment" in Stockland Liveability Survey 2018.

A big thank you to Stockland and please continue to support our community. I had recently moved into the area plus started chemo after being diagnosed with breast cancer so wanted to meet people and exercise. A neighbour suggested the camp and I have been coming ever since. I am happier due to the fact that I have made friends and I am fitter. I am feeling part of a community and enjoying our lovely neighbourhood.

About the Liveability Index

The Stockland Liveability Index is a single number ranging from zero to 100, that represents how satisfied residents are living in a Stockland community. The Liveability Index has been created from a comprehensive range of measures that drive liveability, grouped into five main categories:

  1. Community perceptions
  2. Satisfaction with community design elements
  3. Personal wellbeing
  4. Satsifaction with their own home / backyard
  5. Education

By focusing on improving performance of these domains, overall resident liveability will improve.
