Hrmm - Well i'm assuminmg it would be a council estate as it's a local authority swap. The road name is Frittenden Close if any ones heard of it ??. I live in birmingham now so am used to over population (especially in my flat)

Yeah been on that yesterday POPS (thanx anyway). I suppose what i want to know is, is it worth leaving family and friends for. Taking into account that i would be moving from 2 bed flat to 4 bed house ?????

Thanx HARMAN any info much appreciated. We live on housing association estate now which isn't to bad. Really worried about accepting somewhere worse than where i am.

I'm just round the corner from Frittenden Close! It IS on the estate with the dodgy reputation, but the houses are very nice- well planned & roomy. Butter/Sabbath- (whatever she's calling herself now) lives on the estate and is happy there.

They are trying to do up the whole estate & do away with its bad reputation. There is a new family centre locally where they have things like computer classes for adults as well as kids activities. That is walking distance. There is a decent bus service & we have the MacArthur Glenn outlet centre.

If you need to know anything specific please ask!

I used to live in Folkestone which is 20 min drive away from Ashford, its not a bad part of the world (much nicer than the w.midlands where I am now) If I had the choice would move back to the south east. Parts of AShford have had bad reputations but I don't think it could be any worse than B'ham (going by all the shootings etc that have been on the news in recent years) (sorry bit doom and gloom but I would feel safer raising my child in Ashford as opposed to B'ham)

Thanx for all of the replies I think if i consider it any further than i will go and have a good look. It was being advertised on an housing exchange site that i am registered on. The only other one of interest was in Slough, Berkshire ????

Fio2, where ARE you moving to?

Harman, hi, haven't been around much. (Always a child on the computer..)
