Bit of a warzone at times

My street is pretty downmarket, on the other hand the redevelopment of houses by private landlords has improved the appearance of buildings. There are plenty schools and nurseries for children and a small park for exercise, including playing football on Saturdays and dog owners wil welcome this green space.

Transport

The neighbourhood contains the North Circular and Harrow Roads, so is easy access for cars. The 18 bus runs to Euston and the 332 to Paddington and the Neasden tube station is on the Jubilee Line.

Community

Parking can be difficult, particularly during school run hours, bin collection is good but their is a fair amount of fly-tipping. In the last year there has been a fatal shooting, prostitution, drug dealing, cannabis cultivation. Terraced houses are being bought up as they become available and converted into studios let to tenants on housing benefit. There is no local student population and in recent years mostly people living alone have oved in.

Amenities

My street boasts two nurseries, a primary school, and across the local park with a handy outdoor exercise area another primary school and a Hindu faith school. The big local landmark, the beautifully ornate BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Hindu temple. If you meet visitors they will either be looking for directions to this or IKEA, which is alongside a Tesco superstore. There are good bus connections to central London and Neasden tube station is on the Jubilee Line. The neighbourhood consists of former railway company houses with no pubs though a former roadhouse on the North Circular Road has a 24 hour McDonalds. Sadly violent crime is a problem with a fatal shooting at one end of my street and a cannabis farm being raided at the other end of the street.

I think it has a good mix of different people.

The local area is friendly with many amenities. I think it has a good mix of different people. There have been recent improvements on the roads improving transport links. There are so many great places to eat for any budget and plenty of green spaces and markets. I think it’s suitable for anyone really and I have never felt unsafe here having lived here for 12 years

Transport

Fantastic transport links with 2 local train/tube stations with direct links to West, Central and East London. There are frequent and reliable trains. Bus services are plentiful going into central and south London. Ladbroke Grove can get busy at times but recent road works have greatly improved local transport. There is also a local night bus service into central london too

Community

There is traffic noise on my street but I live on a busy main road so no surprise there! There is some antisocial behaviour but local police teams are visible and reach out to the community. I wouldn’t say it is anymore of a problem than most places in an inner London area. Accommodation is a mixture of owners and renters. It is good for families and young people alike

Amenities

I have lived here for 12 years and it’s a fantastic area. Great transport links into the city and beyond with at least 2 local train/tube stations. There are a variety of restaurants, cafes, pubs and a wonderful independent cinema The Lexi. Queens Park is a 10 minute stroll away with a Sunday Farmers market. Portobello road and Notting Hill are within easy walking distance as is the Grand Union canal. There’s a local sports centre, good local schools and I honestly can’t think of anything that’s missing! I love it here

Everything about living here is bad I would move out any day

Everyone knows everyone I guess that’s the only good thing

Transport

The buses are always full of people and over crowded even during COVID this poses a risk on health and the majority of people don’t even west masks.

Community

There is no good aspects of living here there is a lot of anti social behaviour which can be very scary.

Amenities

The ghetto do not recommend moving here really bad this is not the part of London you don’t want to live in it’s very bad
