Whether you’ve got toddlers or teens, you’ll probably want to be as close as possible to local sports and leisure facilities, nice restaurants, supermarkets and cinemas. Before moving to a new home, check which clubs and classes are in the local area – from swimming to football, dance, and everything in-between – and find out if there’s a park within walking distance.
New build developers are obliged to contribute to the local community financially and must look to include leisure facilities and park land within their plans. So it’s worth researching what developers have in mind. For instance, local council and developers might have agreed for the developers to contribute towards the building of a new school which will cater for the increase in families moving to the area.
