Apparently now the SO53 postcode area is deemed one of the most desirable places to live in the UK.
(You’re right, the SO53 postcode area covers the Chandler’s Ford and Hiltingbury neighbourhoods.)
Royal Mail has released an update of its 2015 study to find the most desirable places to live and work in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales based on Postcode.
The study was undertaken by the Centre for Economics and Business Research (Cebr). (Note: as of 2nd March 2017, the Cebr page still showed the 2014 data.)
The study reviewed the past two years and calculated the most desirable areas based on a range of factors, including good schools, access to green spaces, good employment prospects, working hours, affordable housing and average commuting times.
