Hi I'm looking to buy a property very soon and want to make an informed choice. As such I am searching for tools to aid me in researching the surrounding area's of houses I am interested in. The kind of information I'm after is flood risk/crime risk/nieghbours risk (difficult to assess ie children = noise etc)

So far I have discovered the following resources:

http://houseprices.co.uk/

http://environment-agency.gov.uk/homeandleisure/37793.aspx

http://maps.police.uk/view/dorset/

http://www.neighbourhood.statistics.gov.uk/dissemination/LeadHome.do;jessionid=ac1f930d30d6179457030e7348e5bf27f6e25d1d5db1?m=0&s=1285270427272&enc=1&nsjs=true&nsck=true&nssvg=false&nswid=1680

However I'm really looking for more! The best solution would be a google/bing/whoever map mashup of this data into a super map so i could make a really informed decision

Thanks

Alec
