Falling crime makes Cheshire good for home relocationApril 30th, 2012 | Posted by in Expatriate Relocation
Cheshire as a whole is a popular destination for home relocation, both for affluent UK residents and for international moving.
However, newly published crime figures make West Cheshire a particularly good choice for home relocation, with dramatic drops in a number of different kinds of offence.
Antisocial behaviour in the area fell by 11% in the latest British Crime Survey, compared with 2010-11 figures, which anyone considering international moving into the region will welcome.
In Chester city centre, assaults dropped by a huge 21% over the same period as part of a region-wide fall in violent crimes.
Overall, throughout Cheshire West and Chester, and Vale Royal, crime fell by an impressive 7% over the course of the year.
With a historically low number of burglary investigations, the report is good news for residents, but also for businesses planning a corporate relocation or employee relocation into the area.
“Reducing acquisitive crime remains one of our main priorities and, although today’s figures are encouraging, we are not complacent and will continue to build on our success to protect the residents, businesses and visitors of West Cheshire,” says Western area police commander Chief Superintendent Phil Jones.
