Spalding has a high crime rate, most houses have been ruined by carless people living in them. Cant walk around at night, too dangerous, mobs of people wonder streets, hear people yelling abuse.
I would never ever live here.
Pros

  • Proximity to town
Cons
  • Violence
  • Loud
  • Dangerous
  • Some unrenovated houses

"Upcoming suburb"

Overlooked in the past but it's a sleeper. Good sized houses and decent sized blocks. Close to town.
Improving all the time as people start to realise its potential. Increaing number of renovations happening. Can still buy at reasonable prices but this will change as more and more people latch on.
Pros
  • Proximity to town
  • Good houses reasonably priced
Cons
  • Some unrenovated houses
