Better than many areas I've lived or worked in.

Pet hates are the condition of road and paved surfaces, disjointed bus services in some respects, and unsuitability of many properties for disabled people, especially wheelchair / mobility scooter users. .

Transport

Already discussed for most part,; district line reaching upminster one way & central London the other. Mainline trains also go to central London or out to coastal Essex

Community

Parking very limited overall, estate road's, paved areas, drains appalling. Bin & large item collection above average, though road sweeping seems sporadic at best. Train/traffic noise level not bad generally, with a large park other side of railway, and a large cemetery between estate and A13.

Amenities

Plenty of local shopping areas (normally), though Barking mini-mall almost completely closed at present. Buses overall pretty good, but some surprising gaps of coverage, such as routes serving the larger supermarket branches, with 5 district line stations across south of the borough, & 2 mainline stations at northern end. Very traffic intensive in several places, particularly at peak times, & road surfaces / paved areas need major attention, particularly road drainage, especially as southern area is at risk of flooding.

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

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
