Default Thinking of moving to hayling.... Plz help with info!

Hi everyone - New to the forum, so bear with me!

I'm seriously considering a move to Hayling (got some property viewings this w/e - oh, and I'm nowhere near retirement age btw..) So I've been hunting through the forum in hunt of answering some of my questions - and was wondering if you could help me get my head round a couple questions I have without any/all the 'estate agent gloss' being applied...

Crime - Is Winsor close sorted & is that end of Hayling ok? (i.e. Is my Jag likely to end up on bricks & windowless?) I've seen crime stats etc - but they're pretty useless, crime looks low etc - but what's cookin?

Flooding - I'm looking at places on the seafront / Southwood road etc - what's the likelyhood of my rubber duck collection ending up - floating across the lounge? Or my window's getting blown out with Shingle etc?

Properties - There's loads on the market, is everyone evacuating the Island or something??? Que?

Hope you can help me out! Thanks in Advance!

Hiya! I wouldn't jump into Winsor Close just yet.

Flooding -

The part of Southwood Road that doesn't flood (so far) is from Creek Road corner to almost the top of the road (going west). I'm sure some other members can be a bit more accurate!

I think we'll have to call you Space Cadet for short!

Mmmmmmm - rather a strange first post I must admit.

Why is your primary concern regarding windsor close?
Is it your budget?

Letting this go over me head..........

Concern about Winsor close - just read posting elsewhere on the forum that there's been trouble there...

There has been, in the past - don't know about now but, PERSONALLY, I'd give it a miss.

What viewings have you got this weekend?

Think there is a new management system in place now, but other places too have their problems.
What is your budget? What sort of property are you looking for?
Maybe if you were to elucidate a little more, you may get more response / replies.
The Island isn't cheap -even for a 1 bed flat is expensive.

Budget - up to 230k... flat / house / bungalow - don't mind really... I've just picked a cross section of places to look at this weekend.. more concerned about the obvious things, like flooding / crime etc

I lived a stonesthrow from Winsor Close, up until last year, and had no trouble at all. Wheatlands Avenue is good, I think. Stamford Avenue is off Seafront, isn't it? I think it's ok there as well.

Budget range then????????

Stamford ave would prob be the better end of the Island IMO anyway- but then, that is close to other problems (in the past ) areas too.
Suggest do some more homework as to what sort of amenities you are after, that way you'll probably find something more to your personal preferences.
