What are theareas to avoid in and around Gillingham and Maidstone?

My husband and I are relocating to Kent and have been looking at properties in and around both Gillingham and Maidstone but we don't know the area very well and wondered if anyone can advise on areas to avoid, or areas which are nice (ie no chavs, council estates, etc) Thanks in advance for any help you can give us :)

  • Hey HellesBelles, This question that regularly pops up on here, and for good reason! There are a few basic things that you can do online to check statistics for crime in the area, the type of crime and the severity of it and police.uk is one place to go to find that sort of information, although bare in mind that a lot of it is just down to statistics and it doesn’t always give the full picture. I've actually done a post on my website to help with issues like these in our Learning Centre. I'll drop the link below for you to check out, and don't heistate either to contact me if you need anymore help. Regards, Jonathan. :)

  • Thanks Jonathon but I was really after a bit more advice on nice places vs bad places to look, as you said they don't give a true picture! Hx

  • There is currently movement in the odd numbered properties from No41 heritage road down to 55. Do not buy or rent here.
