Royal Mail have released an update on a 2015 study which listed the most desirable places to live in England based on postcode. The study found that the suburbs of North and West Norwich with the NR6 postcode are the second most desirable neighbourhoods in the country. Norwich was beaten by CH63, Bebington in Wirral.
The study said that NR6’s inclusion “leads an increase in the number of areas in the south included in the top ten.” In the last study, the Royal Mail included only three southern postcodes, a number which has increased to six. The research concluded: “Good local schools and lower unemployment helped facilitate the change.”
This latest ranking was carried out by the Centre for Economic and Business Research. Variables taken into account included schools, green spaces, employment prospects, working hours, affordable housing and average commuting time. Royal Mail researchers did not visit any of these areas, and reached their conclusions from analysing statistical data.
The Top 10 Includes:
1. Bebington, Wirral, CH63
2- North and North West Norwich, NR6
3- Broadstone, Bournemouth, BH18
4- Sale, Greater Manchester, M33
5- East Cowes, Isle of Wight, PO32
6- Eastleigh, Hampshire, SP53
7- Ipswich, Suffolk, IP5
8- Horsforth, Leeds, LS18
9- Dronfield, North East Derbyshire, S18
