From Get Hampshire (ed. my emphasis in bold):
“Hart district has retained its the title of the best place to live in the UK for the fifth year in a row.
The Halifax Quality of Life Survey placed Hart in the top spot based on its high performance in a wide range of measures including: residents’ health and life expectancy, overall well-being, employment, low crime rate, relatively good weather and good broadband Internet access.
Councillor Stephen Parker, leader of Hart District Council, said: “We are all delighted to receive this title for the fifth consecutive year. It is a real dividend on the investment of time and effort in our green flag open spaces and £1.2m for the fleet pond restoration project, the vibrant local economy and the continued focus on health and wellbeing in the district ….
The environment, economy and community remains right at the heart of our priorities, goals and promises as a council.”
