Is there sufficient green space in Branston?

Providing the right amount of green space for people in the UK is a difficult subject because there are clear benefits for human health but at the same time, it is hard to make sure all areas of the UK can get enough greenery. This is a result of land being already in use in cities where most people live.

In Branston, 15 is the amount of acres of outdoor space there is for every 1000 people. Charities such as ‘Fields in Trust’ recommend there to be at least 6 acres. This should allow you to conclude whether this green space is sufficient for you if you are interested in buying in Branston.

As you can tell, this figure along with the number of people who have degrees roughly correlate. For reference, the percentage of people who have degrees in the UK is 22.6% and the average household income is.

As a general rule, the bigger the difference between this 22.6% figure and the percentage of people with a degree in Branston, the bigger the difference in the ability to earn and hence buy a house. A higher number of degrees will increase the potential for people to earn and hence the buying power of the population. This will also push up the price of houses in the area.

Nonetheless, making accurate estimates for the appreciation of homes must be done with other pieces of data in mind such as the rental yields or perhaps the crime rate of the area to name some examples.

In the below headings, the city of Branston and its demographics will be compared to its wider location (East Midlands). This includes population size, growth and population education now and into the future.

Things like burglaries are always a possibility which could harm your ability to pay for home insurance and also may force you to install additional security in your home that can cost you further.

Having said this, you can look at the crime rate on a deeper level to find out what the threats are exactly. It could be the case that a proportion of these crimes (13200% for every 1000 people) come from things like anti-social behaviour rather than more serious crimes like violence and sexual offences.
