For this sort of request, you can find just about all of the information you need right here on the Zoopla website including crime statistics, demographics, schools, services and transport links. To find all of this, you just need to go back to the Zoopla home page and search for all properties in the postcode you specified. When this brings up a list of houses, you can just click on any one (the actual details of the homes is irrelevant).
Once you do this, you will see a photograph, with a row of tabs above it. Click on the one that is called 'local info' and you will be brought to a page with a number of different stats, figures, info and graphs. From the top section, you will be able to see the transport options in and nearby the area. Below this, you can check crime rates and schools etc, which will be among the most common information that people will look for when it comes to moving to a new region.
A quick look at the graph shows that crime rates in the area you specify are actually very good. For the most part, it performs far better than the national average, with instances of criminal activity sitting below that found across the nation as a whole. School pass rates (on the same graph) are largely just below average, although you could still check out the individual schools listed above the graph for more in depth features.
Before you decide to move to the area, though, it is a great idea to set some time aside to read through all of the information on that page. Of particular use can be things such as the reviews and ratings afforded it by other people who have lived there (at the top of the web page).
