    Its not luxury apartments, its more new estates that attract young first time buyers wanting to get a foot on the property ladder. The kids on those streets will go to the same state schools, and be playing in the same local parks etc. Equal access to good housing and schools gives kids in low income families better opportunities for learning, better future job prospects, or future university places if that's what they want. Its a smart move for society. :)

    Interesting. Perhaps the quite unique place you are thinking of is the one that is not far from me. :D

    There's some resources here you might find useful, (wording for letters withdrawing consent, stickers etc). :)

    Thank you. I’m feeling unsure about moving now as I’ve realised that most properties will come already fitted with smart meters, and I don’t know if I’ll be able to get it removed, or to destroy it. Argh. Why are people so crazy?!

    There's reasons why both private renting and social housing may not have opted for smart meters, so its worth asking. For a landlord, people won't refuse to rent a nice property because it doesn't have a smart meter, and opt for a dump that has one. It is more likely to put people off who don't want one (whether for EHS, or rights to privacy issues). The next issue is that a new tenant has the right to shop around for the best utility prices, and swapping from one provider to another can be problematic when dealing with smart meters. A lot of landlords and social housing projects won't want the hassle. My mother was in a social housing project for the elderly, and there was no smart meter. :)

    Ok, cool. I’ll have to just ask before I look round anywhere. :)
