This report looks at the results from a survey of 310 residents of the 2012 Commonwealth Games Athletes’ Village, discussing why people moved to the Village and where they came from.

The Village has provided high quality housing, an attractive and quiet environment, a relatively mixed community, and a socially harmonious place. The vast majority of residents were found to be happy with their decision to move to the Village.   

The report also considers the sustainability of the Village, this being one of the key original objectives of its developers.
