East Cambridgeshire has UK’s best quality of life: Ely heads top ten ‘rural’ places to live

East Cambridgeshire has been named as having the best quality of life of any rural area in the UK according to a national survey.

Research conducted for the latest Halifax Rural Areas Quality of Life Survey highlights a number of reasons for the District’s top rating. They include:

* Residents are fit and well with 93 per cent reporting general good health, while it has the joint highest life expectancy amongst rural areas of 82 where life expectancy is four years higher than the UK average.
* The employment rate is high at 79 per cent and many residents enjoy relatively high incomes with weekly average earnings of £707.
* Residents also have the lowest domestic CO2 emissions of all rural local area districts.
* The average house price in the area is 5.3 times local annual gross earnings, which is below the average house price to earnings ratio for all rural areas of 5.9.

Councillor Peter Moakes, Leader at East Cambridgeshire District Council, said: “The survey by the Halifax confirms what many of us have known for years, East Cambridgeshire is a great place to live. This ranking is a culmination of all the hard work which residents, communities and organisations have put in over the years. From our fantastic countryside to our healthy lifestyles and strong economy, living in our district is a wonderful thing and I count myself very lucky to be an East Cambridgeshire resident.

“Everyone of us wants to live, work and enjoy our district and are determined to achieve great things for East Cambridgeshire. However, we are not complacent with excellent districts like South Cambridgeshire also hunting for the top spot, we must continue to strive to be the best we can be. This is our goal but if this survey reminds us of anything it is the need to stop and reflect that despite the challenges we all face, East Cambridgeshire is a wonderful place to call home.”
