The underrated aspect of E5

I do like Chatsworth Market very much and I feel like more areas in Hackney should have thee markets, it gives a sense of communicate and you see the market full of families, kids, dogs, cats, different demographics and races - essentially full of diversity.

Transport

Thankfully E5 is located to a nearby distance form Stratford and the Olympic park, meaning that travel access is significant. There are many train stations nearby, Homerton, Hackney Downs and Hackney Central which in my own experience has allowed me to easily travel from north to east to south to west London, I’ve personally never had any complications with travel. However, I will truthfully admit that there always seems to be a travel blockage when travelling my car, this is due to road work development or crime scenes that often that place in the area which leads to disruption. Honestly, I’m not sure how to overcome the constant road work issues, perhaps the government can ensure that work given is substantial and effective to lead to less problems in the future and with the crime issues, that is the case of raising awareness and encouraging individuals to not turn to crime.

Community

I can say that E5 is probably a lot quieter than most places in Hackney, but that is not to say crime is a massive issue in the area, therefore I often hear police sirens daily. In terms of the people I am around, it is a close nit environments with many primary schools and children surrounded, along with the parks and outdoor facilities offered, E5, is a friendly space to be around. I often find big families and the elderly living on my street.

Amenities

Post Olympic Games E5 has been in the rise of gentrification, where parts of the area have been develop and new restaurant and bar spaces have been created. There is also a massive Nike outlet, where they hold numerous networking events for young children who are at a disadvantage and offer them insight events to get people from this socio-economic group into industries. We are fortunate to have Hackney Spaces, Milfields Park, and Hackney surrounding the area where there are opportunities to play outdoor sports or any other leisure activities. However, I will admit I do not see what is done in the space, I do not believe the space is ultilised and offered to the best that it can be, perhaps more youth centres or tuition/study spaces can be opened up. Or perhaps an interactive hub, where young people and adults are able to learn and flourish more in their skills/interests, such as cooking, creative industries, legal sectors etc. A lot can be done with the space that we have but it seems as the area not the demographic is a priority to government officials.

The Diamond In The Rough

I mostly love the feeling of inclusion the sense of community that i share with those in my street however the area in general although quite tidy could use some tlc due to damaged pavements and such on the other hand children could love it here due to the diverse relations

Transport

I am not so fond of public travel but our roads at times in my opinion can be rather peaceful simply wonderful for quiet weekends

Community

We have a mixing pot of nationalities such as Bengali Black aswell as other ethnic minorities resulting in diverse culture

Amenities

The Bakehouse located in our little E5 area is simply the most redeeming quality it comes off as humble and charming overall I reckon Underrated

Nice area but council has ruined the area with anti car agenda

It has become very trendy and many of old shops have been replaced with hipster pop up shops and has become very similar to Shoreditch

Transport

The transport links are good with homerton overground and hackney down station both nearby and loads of bus routes to place like Dalston and west London.

Community

Street is made of good mixture of home owners and renters and is a very desirable location due to it being very trendy.

Amenities

Loads of shops now with alot of then very trendy shops but has become car free so impossible to drive or park in area anymore.
