London lifestyle survey boosts borough

Bromley rates as one of the best places to live in London, according to a report published by Experian Property Check.

The survey scored the borough highly for the quality of its shops, schools, and health facilities, leading it to be named the best place to live for families with young children.

It also placed Bromley second in the top 10 of London boroughs in terms of places to live for parents whose children have left home, and fourth on the list for families with older children.

Council leader Stephen Carr said the survey findings were cause for celebration, but not complacency.

"This is very good news, confirms what we have long thought to be true, and totally vindicates our development agenda. Our borough is a fantastic place to live and work," he said

"Bromley has highly performing schools and good shopping centres in our high streets coupled with great restaurants, bars, live theatre and leisure facilities along with many local open spaces and sporting facilities.

"However, we are not resting on our laurels. We continue to build on the great quality of life in the borough through new investment for our town centres in Bromley, Orpington and Beckenham."
