Good/bad areas of Nottingham (near M1)?

We are considering moving to one of the suburbs of Nottingham, close to the M1 (Long Eaton/Sandiacre/Stapleford direction) at the end of this year & was hoping for some local info of what areas/streets to avoid? We don't have a massive budget (£125k) so we must be realistic when it comes to where we can afford to live. Ideally we would like a 3 bed semi with parking in an area that is safe to raise a young family. Myself & my husband don't know the area & even though we realise that every area has its "bad" we don't want to live in the middle of a huge council estate so knowing any roads to avoid within various areas would be a big help. Thank you :)

  • Another area to consider close to M1 Junction 26 is Kimberley/Nuthall/Awsworth . Excellent schools, terrific shopping and transport links. good outdoor space and sports etc. Good community and very low crime rate. only 4.5 ish miles from Nottingham and feels semi rural if you like that sort of thing. The above areas are fine, avoid Beeston and the centre of Nottingham. As cities go its not as black as it is painted especially on the outskirts.
