Best places to live for Young people

I wonder if this is some deliriously distorted middle aged view of being young.O.o

Of course not. The main concern , as a young person myself, is absolutely where I can get 4G coverage.

I'm a bit annoyed that these old farts didn't put in a "distance to shop that sells avocados" filter.

There's a couple of thigns that stood out.

Esme Wardle, who's a home carer from Bridport tells Newsbeat: "There are carer jobs because so many people come to retire here.

"West Dorset is quite boring. It's nice that I know everyone but if I want to go for a proper night out as an 18-year-old, I have to travel for more than an hour to actually be able to stay up past 1am.

This girl needs to be doubling her wage. Let the old fuckers pay her a huge amount for home care. And make the OAP pay - not the council i.e. the younger ctax payers.

While rent prices are relatively high in the City of Bristol, it has the highest rate of inward youth migration in Britain - meaning it has the most young people moving there compared to leaving.

Anyone with a London property needs to be discounting the price to sell. Is London has stopped beign the place where young workers go then there is no way it can maintain high house prices.

Bristol is dump, an on-going fight between hipsters + chavs + students. The rent prices are insane and continue to increase, most these youngsters will be spending minimum 60% of their salary on rent. The rents are high, local salaries low and a daily commute by either car or bus will make you suicidal. Least in London the sky is the limit when it comes to earnings. Why the fuck any young person with any get up and go would want to move to Bristol is beyond me, unless they're a trustafarian.

Bristol's very nice IMO; it's just that the house prices have wrecked it.

I have heard that there is a lot of interest in houses in Newport now that the Severn Bridge tolls have gone; they are something like half the price.

Having finally clicked on the link my first reaction is "Do what?".

Why on earth would access to mental health care be top of your list if you're under 26? 

I'm not dismissing the seriousness of mental health but to actually list that as a key criterion for whether young people will enjoy living somewhere is, to put it bluntly and very appropriately: NUTS.

Melton in Leicestershire is at the bottom of a list of places to live if you're under 26, BBC analysis suggests.

Variables considered include access to mental health care, average rent prices and levels of unemployment.

The list ranks 378 local authorities in England, Wales and Scotland from highest to lowest. Comparative data for Northern Ireland wasn't available.

Islington in London came top of the rankings, which are part of Radio 1 Newsbeat's Know Your Place project.

Do we actually have any Dosbodders under 30? Even one?

I was at one time, but I got older. Last thing "yoof" want is embarassing uncle, trying to be too cool. They look like nobheads.

It may have been the bald head and beard but I had him labelled in my mind as being mid thirties (two years ago when that thread ran....)

He may have been lying!

I said on my football site that I was under 20, I think it was to make a point about it not mattering in a thread about the voice of yoof or somesuch, and I was surprised when people believed me despite my having been active on that site since 2007 and it showing on my profile.  I was complimented upon my use of English for a youngster.

Liverpool gets a 7/10! xD

Stabby Socialist Republic of Islington number one,  bottom Melton Mobray ( I've seen that one top on most desirable places to live) tells you all you need to know.

Basically the So-Called BBC are peddling cool urban.

A calculator by postcode rating your area out of 10 by the So-Called BBC.

As things like night clubs score high, might I suggest zero is probably paradise.

My area, Derbys Dales, scores just three and it's wonderful.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/newsbeat-46815257

Well yeah, it is to you but you're no spring chicken are you?

It's probably* about where young people tooled up with knives can exhibit their skills, etc.

* I say probably because I'm not sure you should be reading things about young people at your age and I'm definitely not going to bother. We're past it mate. If you have children let them read it, so they can avoid places heavily populated by fossils.

Yeah.

Im not sure why they gave such a high wieghting to mental health.

Surely the under 20s in London would be more worried about the provision of chest trauma facilities?

Yeah the actual city itself is/was quite nice. Lots of problems Bristol now face stem from enrichment, native trust fund hipsters combined with gimmigrants turning the place into a shit hole + BTL landlord scum.

Going to be interesting as you say with lots moving across the bridge while still working in Bristol, lots of cheaper tradesmen coming over to work. Will put even more downwards pressure on already piss poor local wages, making Bristol even more unaffordable.

Ha ha, you can just imagine the silly old cunt of a journey who wrote this at BBC HQ. Where are "Tinder Subscriptions per 100,000", "Distance to nearest county line dealer", "Cheap gyms and meal prep services"...

Isle of Wight scored four. Mainly because it scored 10 on mental health services.

And that is because in the 70s the correct answer to someone moaning about being depressed was 'brace up'.
