Macclesfield achieves high ranking for happiness

January 10, 2019 by  

The town of Macclesfield was judged to be the happiest in its region in a recent survey.

Rightmove research asserted that Macclesfield is the happiest town in the north west of England. Every year, the Happy at Home Index measures how content residents are in their areas. People have to think about a dozen factors which can contribute to their wellbeing.

Friendly neighbours, high quality services, cultural activities and green spaces can all make somewhere seem special. Businesses may choose to relocate to areas which could have a positive impact on their companies which could lead to an increased demand in business card printing and other services provided by print shops.

Kendal was the only town in the north west that managed a top ten ranking in the national index. Leigh-on-Sea, in Essex, came top of the table. Natalie Nuttall, a Macclesfield resident, has paid tribute to the strength of the town’s community spirit. Nuttall is also impressed by the location of the town. She told Cheshire Live:

“It is the gateway to the Peak District so we’re on the doorstep of some incredible countryside, 20 minutes on the train from Manchester and 1hr 45 from London.”

Statistics from the Land Registry show that average house prices in Macclesfield have increased sharply since 2015. More investment is likely to boost the optimism in the town. There will soon be extra resources available for Castle Street and a local leisure hub.
