Sussex towns flying high in ‘healthiest places’ poll

Sussex towns flying high in ‘healthiest places’ poll

House hunters looking for property for sale in Sussex will be pleased to hear that the county has been voted the healthiest place to live in the country.

Sussex towns Crawley and Lewes have both been named in the top ten areas of England and Wales where residents can expect to enjoy the longest lives. Life expectancy for men in Crawley is 81.8 years, well above the national average of 78.2 while women born in the Lewes district are expected to live up to 85.1 years compared to a national average of 83.2.

Variations in life expectancy can be put down to a number of different factors including lifestyle, levels of deprivation and the availability of local services and it seems Sussex is progressing well on these fronts.

Crawley Borough Council leader Bob Lanzer told The Argus: “We would say that is a reflection on the environment, employment and the range of leisure and cultural opportunities, including the K2 leisure centre, The Hawth Theatre and Tilgate Park.”

The figures were released by the Office for National Statistics and contain a range of life expectancy across Sussex.ADNFCR-1222-ID-800771863-ADNFCR
