Cotswold District is in seventh heaven!

Release date: 30 January 2019

A leading annual survey that reviews quality of life has ranked Cotswold District as the seventh best place to live in the UK.

The Halifax Building Society assesses health, life expectancy, wellbeing, employment, crime rates and weather to determine the most desirable areas to live.  This year Cotswold District has been rated as seventh overall.

Commenting on this ranking, Cotswold District Council Leader Cllr Tony Berry said,

“When I became leader of CDC at the end of last year I reminded everyone that we are very fortunate to live in such a lovely part of the country – and it is very pleasing to note that the Halifax survey shares my high opinion!

“I am aware that all is not rosy in the garden and we continue to face difficult challenges, including the provision of affordable housing and parking, but we sometimes tend to forget the many plus points of living in the Cotswolds.  This survey result is a timely reminder that this is a really great place to live and work – and a fantastic tourist destination too.”
