Have you considered buying a property within a gated community?

Have you ever considered buying a property within a gated community? Often this consists of flats or apartments as part of a single development that controls access with gated entrances for cars, cyclists and pedestrians alike. There are many benefits to this, with the most obvious being security.

Are gated communities safer?

Gated communities are often found in greener areas of Surrey, where there is likely to be easy public access to the apartments without walls and gates being in place. It prevents access by those who do not live in the community, or have not been granted access by residents, for example visiting friends or family, which dramatically reduces the risk of burglaries, and disturbances.

Greater privacy and community

At the same time, gated communities offer just that – a greater sense of community. This can be due to the fact that residents have a common interest to keep shared outside areas in the best possible condition. Shared resources in most gated developments will offer both allocated parking for residents and visitors, as well as communal garden areas, like the ones that the Shottermill Park development boasts. It can also offer greater privacy because of the security measures, as well as reduced noise as there is no traffic flow through the development.
