A recent study has revealed the optimal neighbourhoods in Melton for owning a property with garden space.

The surging costs of homes have hit unprecedented highs, posing challenges for first-time buyers to manage soaring mortgage expenses. Yet, for many families, the availability of garden space remains pivotal in choosing where to embark on their new life journey.

In response to this demand, MG Timber and Online Marketing Surgery collaborated to produce the Garden Space Report. This report helped rank areas in Melton based on the extent of outdoor space available, unveiling the prime locations for purchasing houses with gardens in the town.

  • The data around access to gardens and public green spaces in Great Britain was taken from the Office for National Statistics.
  • To find out the population of each area in both top five lists, we used Census data which is the most recent publication on the population of each place in the UK.
  • We then downloaded the recent ‘Access to garden space, Great Britain’ dataset and pulled out the data for areas in Melton.
  • From this we then pulled out the ‘private outdoor space total area (m²)’ section in the ‘Housing’ tab to find the places with the highest and lowest amount of home green space. This sorted the list from highest to lowest to create the rankings.
