Happy home rating is ‘too silly for comment’

A survey by the property website Rightmove ranks the borough a lowly 122 out of 130, just ahead of neighbouring Harrow, Brent and Hounslow.

Asked whether they liked their area, respondents placed Hillingdon 120th and in the bottom 10 for recreational facilities,
Hillingdon Council leader, Cllr Ray Puddifoot dismissed the survey as “so silly it’s not even worthy of comment”.
