Sažetak

For a balanced development of cities today there obviously needs
to be a dialogue between different social actors. This type of
approach to development was established by adopting the
concept of social sustainability which emphasises the importance
of civic participation in strategic development planning. This
paper aims to examine the satisfaction of Varaždin residents with
the level of some dimensions of social sustainability and city
governance practices. The data were collected through a survey
of a representative sample of the adult population of the City of
Varaždin (N=500). By analysing elements of the concept of
social sustainability of the city, from the point of view of the
citizens of Varaždin, we arrived at the conclusion that suggests a
low level of social sustainability in the city development management.
This survey has also shown that the level of education is a
precondition for the ability to be critical of development issues,
and that the opinions of individuals with a higher level of education
are closer to the concept of socially sustainable development
of the city that reduces the dominance of the political
sector and promotes dialogue between different social actors.
