South West is fastest growing region

A
new report into life in the South West has found the region is the most popular
place to move to in England.

The
report by research body South West Observatory found the area has the fastest
growing population with growth set to continue at double the national average.

But
the study also revealed that access to affordable housing is worse than
anywhere outside London.

Other
findings of The State of the South West 2004 report include the fact that the
region has the highest life expectancy for women and the second highest for
men.

Levels
of crime in the region are also said to be low.

The
results of the Regional Development Agency-commissioned report will be used to
influence strategic planning for the region.
