I am glad I moved here and would have absolutely no trouble in telling people to move here

I would tell anyone thinking of moving into Dagenham that personally I like living here ,it is a friendly borough,the people are sociable the amenities are reasonable apart from the lack of cleanliness locally.I would tell people to check out our schools for vacancies as it is not the easiest to get into the school you want.the borough has plenty of good dentists I'm glad to say ,it also has a lot of green spaces to take your animals for a walk in ,all in all though I am glad I moved here and would have absolutely no q trouble in telling people to move here ,even the local council are helpfull ,like if you need to dispose of old furniture and things you only have to give them a call and they send someone to take it away.

Transport

We have a pretty reasonable transport system in Dagenham, a reasonable bus service which interconnects with all the other boroughs (in other words it's not that difficult to find a route to catch a bus where ever you are in the borough ). Not much in the way of tube trains but it's easy enough to get on a train .most of the area has good cycle routes even if not in the best conditions (they need a bit of maintenance ). The roads also could do with some work but all in all it is pretty easy to get whereverything you want to go without to much hassle.

Community

I live in a close and the people who share our close are really nice folks friendly and helpful .our bin collection is good and the bin men are very helpful.where I live in the close is right next to the main route the local ambulances take to go to St George's hospital and Queens hospital,so it can be a bit noisy ,but I am not complaining as it could be worse.I can't say that I have seen or heard much about antisocial behaviour except at school collection time when people tend to get annoyed when mum's and dads are a little inconsiderate about throwing rubbish out of the cars when they are waiting for their kids to get out of school.

Amenities

Local shops I have found to be very helpful (if they don't stock it ,they will do their best to get it).this area used to be very clean unfortunately it has let standards slip since the government's cutbacks but at least our council have started to consider the local youth by opening up a local youth centre.we don't have many pubs left ,but most of the ones we have are pretty good also there are some good social clubs for older people. It is definitely better than where I used to live.in would give it 6 out of ten.

It's definitely in need of regeneration.

It's definitely in need of regeneration. The streets should be cleaner, at the moment Barking looks like literally no institution is looking after it. It's loaded with rubbish on the streets, plenty of beggers and drunk people..

Transport

I don't travel much as I work from home, but I think most people are dissatisfied with lack of toilets in Barking station, because the one's there are - usually out of order.

Community

I'm a young person so I try to surround myself with people similar to my age. I recently moved in to Barking (3 months ago), so didn't have enough time to figure who lives around me.

Amenities

Everything seems to be kinda cool, apart from amenities that are missing. Would be pretty good having something that East Ham has - Deichmann, Primark or Sports Direct

There is not enough bars for people too go chill out or hav a drink.

It suitable for children it just some people wanna keep in your business n pets are cool but if u hav like a mastif dog just know that owners with small dogs are picking up them dog

Transport

Well London is dirty already but same time it a thing where transport personally I think trains n busses shud be cleaned more frequently n also shud be 24 hrs no matter the area

Community

Parking is okish but need more because people tend to park infront of someone’s drive way and then they can’t get in or out. Bin collections brilliantly done. Social behaviour is great Only time u really c traffic is when school runs

Amenities

Most shops are ok but some of them have no home training n no manners then you have take away food shops like why oh why they let beggers in when they just give problems I don’t know. There is not enough bars for people too go chill out or hav a drink. Parks are same like everywhere else open then close too build flats or houses s as n we defo need some places where the places are just open so for example someone can have a function in a venue without upsetting the whole neighbourhood
