Wandsworth most popular destination in London to move to according to the Office for National Statistics

''Wandsworth is the most popular destination for UK residents moving to capital.

According to ONS data on internal migration, 13,105 Britons made the borough their home last year.

Council leader Ravi Govindia said it was “absolutely no surprise” to him that people aspired to live in Wandsworth.

He added: “We have some of the best parks and open spaces, some of the best shopping areas and some of the best transport links. Our schools are excellent too.

“When you combine all these elements and include the fact that our council tax bills are half the London average, then it’s absolutely no surprise that so many people want to make Wandsworth their home.

“The challenge for us is to continue working hard to provide the high quality homes for people on all incomes, alongside all our other services like school places, for a rapidly growing population.”

The ONS figures show neighbouring Merton welcomed 4,319 new residents, while Hammersmith and Fulham attracted 5,644 people, Sutton 3,533, Croydon 5,950 and Westminster 6,349.''
