    I've left home and am currently at a friends, im applying for Council housing with Lancaster City council> (moving into halls is out of the question due to personal reasons)
    Has anyone got any ideas of what areas in Lancaster are the worst council estates etc and what areas are decent? I've been told the Marsh and The Ridge is not somewhere i should go... i'm not sure about other areas
    I've been given a list
    BRANKSOME, WESTGATE, HESTHAM, KINGSWAY, TRUMACAR, HEYSHAM,WEST END, CARNFORTH, BEAUMONT, MAINWAY, VALE, RYELANDS, SCALE HALLS, CITY CENTER, MARSH, NEWTON, RIDGE, GREAVES, BOWERHAM, HALA, WESTFIELD VILLAGES.

    Thank you

    Many of them are too far away from campus for a easy commute such as Heysham and Carnforth. I'd suggest getting a map of the areas and seeing where you want.

    Most council lists though are tough and you may be waiting a long time to get a place and if you refuse a place may be put to the bottom of the list. I'd suggest looking for spare rooms in student houses.

    Hala, Bowerham and Greaves are ok and are near campus. City Center is obviously good in terms of transport and aminemities.
