I say this 'cos the following article, re-produced in its entirety, is very interesting. We like where we live because we rate it high on 'liveability' - i.e. we have all the amenities we need - commercial, social, economic, health, etc, and all within an easy walk or, at most, a short drive. Rural living is heaps improved on city living and we've tried the "Sea Change" (didn't get enough time in our busy schedule to enjoy the same and too far from support services) so we settled on the "Tree Change" lifestyle.

Our lifestyle is reasonably sedate but we also recognise that we are no 'spring chickens'. The concept of 'liveability' of residential areas is becoming more and more an imperitive as strategic planners plan for an ageing society.
