Hart is where the best home is
THE Hampshire district of Hart has kept its crown as the most desirable place to live in the UK for the third year in a row, according to the 2013 Halifax Quality of Life Survey.
However, there were several big climbers in the top 10, with South Northamptonshire climbing 27 places to third, Rushcliffe up from 22nd to seventh, and Winchester up from 34th to ninth. The survey takes a wide range of factors into account, including residents’ health and life expectancy, crime rate, weather, employment, school results, broadband access, and personal wellbeing. The south of England dominates the Top 50 places, though Harrogate came in at 33 and Orkney at 50. Rushcliffe in Nottingham was seventh.
