It’s official - Austin Field residents live in the UK’s most peaceful area

3rd May 2013 Print

Home-buyers who crave the better quality of life a peaceful location can offer should head for Taylor Wimpey’s Austin Field development in Old Catton, Norfolk.

This in-demand village development located three miles north of the city of Norwich is nestled within the boundaries of Broadland district, which has just been named the most peaceful place to live in the United Kingdom.

Broadland was found to have the lowest violent crime rate in the whole of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland in the UK Peace Index, which was published by the Institute for Economics and Peace in April.

While Austin Field enjoys an unrivalled tranquil location in Broadland, two other Taylor Wimpey developments in Norfolk – Hunters Park and The Hampdens – are only moments from the Broadland district border, in the sought-after Costessey parish.

Stacy Dornan, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey East Anglia, says: “When we research potential new areas to build our high-quality homes, we pay great attention to what home-buyers want – and location often comes top of their list.

“The UK Peace Index confirms what we already knew – that discerning purchasers are drawn to Broadland and its surrounding areas by the exceptional quality of life that this part of the world can offer them.

“Of the 63 million people in the United Kingdom, only a tiny fraction can boast that they live in, or very near, the UK’s most peaceful area – and those lucky enough to own a new home at Austin Field, Hunters Park or The Hampdens certainly can!”

Savvy purchasers can make a stress-free, affordable move to Taylor Wimpey’s developments in peaceful Norfolk by taking advantage of the Government’s new Help to Buy shared equity scheme, which lets first-time buyers and those looking to move home secure their favourite plot for just 80% of its full price, including a 5% deposit.
