Safety and crime when living close to council communities?

Is there any potential risk that could arise or that has arisen in the past by buying a property on Spring Shaw Road, Orpington which is just over 250 yards from a community of council flats. We are looking at moving there but our friends are concerned with crimes which could be perpetrated on cars, properties, individuals from areas nearby.

  • I don't know this area personally but sometimes the perception of crime in such areas is worse than it actually is. I think it would be very wrong to judge all council areas in this way. If I were you I'd go there myself at different times of the day and night, school holidays etc and see for myself. Also check if local shops are like Fort Knox or not! Crime stats are available online too.
