Dan Evans 03 May, 2023

The Community Views team are thrilled to launch the ‘Living in Parramatta’ Views report and access to the online reporting platform. 

The report provides a comprehensive summary of how Parramatta residents’ view their LGA’s liveability and future needs. The data and insights are drawn from our Living in Place community survey – accessible via the platform.

We thank the 1,000+ City of Parramatta residents who completed the survey for their contribution.

What is in the report?
Living in Parramatta builds a narrative about what residents across the City of Parramatta believe makes somewhere a good place to live, how they experience their local area, and what needs to happen to advance quality of life. It details the importance this community places on the provision of ‘reliable and efficient public transport’, ‘social cohesion’ and how experiences of ‘affordable decent housing’ manifest based on residents’ demography, place and life-stage. Living in Parramatta discusses how this community views their health, wellbeing, personal financial circumstances and contextualises all local area insights through comparisons with Greater Sydney and National benchmarks.

By downloading this report you will receive access to the online reporting and exploratory platform and a series of educational on-boarding resources.
