Seaports are maritime commercial facilities that consist of one or more harbours where ships can dock and move cargo and people. They situated on the coast or shore. For centuries, ports have been at the heart of trade, especially logistics, and their importance has only grown. For a century, the port has been a significant contributor to the country's economy. Over the decades, the port's establishment and development have improved the quality of life in the surrounding communities. It has given them a range of ideals to live. This research aims to establish and define the relationship between the port's growth and the local community's lifestyle. A conceptual structure was analyzed and debated, including employment opportunities, mobility, tourism, and safety and security. This study was conducted among members of the local community in Georgetown's North East area using non-probability sampling, which entails circulating a questionnaire in the form of a Google form to 384 respondents. IBM SPSS version 26 was used to analyze the data collected. Different data analysis methods, such as preliminary, descriptive, reliability, and Pearson Correlation, were used to analyze the data collected. The results of this analysis show that versatility has the highest Cronbach's Alpha value in the reliability test and the Pearson Correlation Coefficient rule of thumb. The study's findings revealed a straightforward path toward a higher-quality lifestyle for the local population while also benefiting the sea freight shipping and port industries.
