Bracknell and Reading cited as top place to live in the UK

Reading & Bracknell has topped the 2015 Good Growth for Cities index, produced by PwC and think-tank Demos.  The report compares 39 cities across the UK, looking at various factors relating to economic success and family well-being.

The success of Reading and Bracknell is down to a range of factors including high job security, high income and good levels of health.  In contrast, London was ranked the third worst place to live out of the 39 cities included due to transport congestion, lack of affordable housing and long working hours, amongst other factors.

The other cities that made the top five were Oxford, Edinburgh, Cambridge and Aberdeen.  With Reading & Bracknell, these were the exact same top five cities as in the 2014 report – only the ordering has changed.  This stability suggests that these cities are performing exceptionally well on both a short term and a longer term basis.
