Will it be ok for my kitten to become an outdoor cat after one year of being an indoor cat?

I got a kitten a few months ago, and for now we are living in a first floor flat with no access to a garden. However, next March/April we are moving into the country side and will have access to a garden. How will my cat transition between being an indoor to outdoor cat? How long do I keep him inside when we move until I let him out?

I'm not comfortable letting him out in my area as we are in London and I'm scared he will get lost or not be able to find his way back. Or even worse, be attacked or run over. In the country however, I think he will be much more safe.
