Redditch: The ideal settlement for commuter families

Redditch: The ideal settlement for commuter families

People who are looking to find somewhere to live will often have a specific need that overpowers all others - such as needing a certain school for their kids or finding the perfect peaceful place to retire to. One of the most common things that people will look for though is an area from which they can commute into their chosen place of work each morning.

London is the most common city that people will look to commute into, but there are any number of other places that are also popular with people making the daily trek, and Birmingham is one such area, with many people coming into the second city for work each morning.

When looking for a commuter area, there will be few that are better than that which can be found when looking for property for sale in Redditch. With only 8,000 residents, it is the perfect family settlement thanks to the peace and quiet that can be found there. 

However, it is also perfectly placed as a commuter area, being just 15 miles from the centre of Birmingham, which means there is no need for a long journey to work each morning.

Commuters need to know that they are choosing to live somewhere that gives them good access to the city as well as being close though, and this is an area Redditch excels in. With its own train station, the town will allow locals to reach Birmingham New Street directly in a matter of minutes each morning.

One of the key things residents will be looking for in any commuter town will be somewhere they can shop and entertain themselves without having to travel anywhere, and this is something that they will find in Redditch. The town is home to a large shopping centre, which is ideal for those seeking a little bit of retail therapy of a weekend.

And for parents, there are a number of primary and secondary schools to choose from so they know they can select something that perfectly fits their child's needs.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801627415-ADNFCR
