The SW17 postcode covers the area of Tooting. It neighbours on Balham in the North, Streatham in the East, Colliers Wood in the South and Wimbledon in the West. There are many green spaces accessible for local residents similar to a lot of the postcodes in this part of London. Garrat Park, Garratt Green, Fishponds Playing Fields, Tooting Bec Common, Sir Walter John's Sports Ground, Wandsworth Common, Figges Marsh and Wandle Meadow Nature Park are some of the green spaces either directly located within the SW17 border or are right on it.
Tooting is very well connected with outer parts of London via many bus routes and the Northern Line running through Tooting Bec and tooting Broadway Tube Stations. The Tooting Rail Station also provides SW17 with the needed connection to places outside the capital with Southern and Thameslink Line services.
Tooting offers a combination of areas with beautiful Victorian Terraced homes and town houses, busy high streets with countless shops, village-like neighbourhoods with winding streets and even some industrial parks. There is a bit of everything in Tooting.
Such a variety of different feeling areas requires any leaflet distribution company to map out the postcode as carefully as possible. This allows for the distributors on the ground to be well informed aabout the conditions they will encounter on the ground. If done correctly it will also give clients the ability to select the right areas to target with well segmented demographics. Last but not least such a process will exclude all the households and addresses that can't be delivered to. Inaccessible gated communities, businesses and local authority housing are all excluded. This provides the most accurate numbers for the amount of deliverable residential addresses in an area.
The North-Western part of SW17 covers the area of Upper tooting. The residential addresses can be found mostly in Victorian Terraced Homes here. The area is relatively affluent due to the quality of real estate and easy access to both the Tooting Bec Station and some green areas and parks nearby.
A considerable part of this quadrant is also covered by many NHS buildings lining the winding roads north of Streatham Cemetery.
If we move South-West the situation is very similar. There is an even higher number of Victorian terraced homes with well-to-do households. The proximity to transport links and green areas is very similar as in the area above and thusly it provides a comparable demographic make up. St.George's Hospital and surrounding buildings also cover a large portion of this area.
The South-Eastern part of SW17 provides some of the most fertile ground for leaflet distribution anywhere in London. There are dozens of streets lined with hundreds of easily accessible houses. These range from large detached town-houses in the south to more Victorian terraced housing the more north we move.
The North-Eastern part of SW17 is probably the calmest area in Tooting. The home are again larger and generally detached. The access to Tooting Beck adds to the general relaxed feel of this part of Tooting.
