If you are new to the area, you may be pleasantly surprised by the housing costs, with brand new shared ownership homes starting at £87,000 for a one bedroom flat and £160,000 for a three bedroom house. Rents start at under £700 a month for one bedroom property so, where else would you like to live and work?
