Our Top 10 Greater London New Homes Developments For Transport Links

Posted 18 December 2023 by Keith Osborne

We’ve taken a look at current Greater London new homes developments to discover those that rate best for Transport Links...

WhatHouse.com has introduced its comprehensive Location Ratings data that give new homes developments a score based on the major house-hunters consider when searching for a new property.

Based on figures from data experts CLSQ, we base our Location Ratings in five main categories: Health & Wellbeing, Education & Amenities, Tech Connectivity, Finance and Transport Links.

Factors such as commuting, travel options and ease of reaching friends and family are key to many property-seekers, and increasing focus on things like cycling instead of driving, or being able to charge more eco-friendly electric cars close to home.

To calculate our Location Ratings score for Transport Links we consider things like provision of public transport services, the proximity of motorways, A-roads and cycle pathways, and EV charger access.

We’ve taken a look at current Greater London new homes developments and these are the ones that score best in our Transport Links category.
