OC Homes is in Waltham Forest, best place in UK

OC Homes are proud to announce that we serve and represent such an amazing London borough! The London Borough of Waltham Forest has been named the best place in the UK to raise a family. It was one of six areas in the capital to make the top ten, according to a survey carried out by ADT.

When it comes choosing somewhere to raise a family, there are a whole host of factors that come into play. Sure, safety is pretty much any parent’s number one concern, but there’s loads of little things which just make life a bit easier, like the price of bus fare, house prices and the quality of local schools. 

A new study has just done some research to find the best places in the UK to raise a family, with all those factors rolled in. ADT, an alarm systems company, has looked at stuff like school ratings, house prices and bus fares, as well as crime and burglary rates for various local authorities across the UK, to calculate a ‘family safety score.’

In the entire UK, Waltham Forest in north east London was named the best place to raise a family.  With an overall rating of 7.23, it ranked within the top 15 for the lowest burglary and crime rates, was seventh best for schools and joint sixth for its number of green areas.

But Waltham Forest wasn’t the only London spot in the top ten, with London Borough of Havering (where our Essex office is based), Bexley, Bromley, Hounslow and Hillingdon all making the cut.
