“It's friendly. It's upmarket”
“would be very nice to develop this area because it's well located!”
More large green spaces and parks would be preferable. Ideally wardened parks as there are some 'open spaces' which are frequented more by people drinking heavily than families/children/elderly residents, who I expect feel intimidated in these areas. Teenagers also tend to congregate in groups of 20+ in these areas which I expect people find intimidating too. I don't necessarily think they're being anti social or misbehaving, but don't have any free/low cosy activities to participate in and appear to be from lower income families who may not be able to support them to participate in other social activities. Some of the area has been 'gentrified, in particular Kensal Rise, Kensal Green and Queens Park. There appears to be a great degree of racial tension in the area, particularly from the new arrivals. My partner is BAME and I find that the looks we get from white middle class individuals (actually, really only females) are negative/hostile, especially if in sports wear (we don't wear sports wear outdoors, other than for a jog etc, but I do find that if I wear looser running bottoms I get more hostile looks than if in yoga pants). There definitely seems to be some ethnic and assumed class elitism in the area. We don't tend to get these looks when in work wear or regular clothes. I get the impression that a lot of residents happily put black squares on their instagram, and think that they are woke because they proudly voted Labour and Remain, but would prefer the area to only be white and middle class. This can be particularly evident in local Facebook groups for the area. This does make me wonder whether there is some degree of imperialism with how openly pro-remain these residents are, as the current EU coordination rules mean that it's easy for EU migrants (mainly white people) to enter the UK, whereas people from outside of the European Economic Area (mainly BAME) have to jump through hoops to enter. Considering the racial microaggresions in the area, predominantly from white pro-remain residents, one can only assume that they would prefer white migrants to BAME migrants, and would prefer for them not to have equal access to enter the UK. Area is suitable for pets and children but parks and open spaces are lacking. There are a number of primary and secondary schools, but I don't believe any are particularly outstanding. Area is safe in comparison to other parts of London.
There are good transport links to the area. Kensal Green, Kensal Rise and Queens Park/South Kilburn are in travel zone 2, with easy access to two Overground routes (with multiple destinations) and the Bakerloo line. Se parts of NW10 are in Zones 3-4. Bus routes around Kensal Green and Kensal Rise, particularly those along Chamberlayne Road which travel down towards Ladbroke Grove are heavily congested at rush hours/school runs and have led to a great deal of complaints about idling cars/fumes, especially close to primary schools. The 18 bus is the only bus which serves large swathes of Harrow Road. More often than not it is too packed too collect commuters at rush hour, and it may take 2-3 buses to go past until one is able to board the 18 bus. The 18 bus is the most hopped onto bus according to hopper fare statistics. The 18 bus appears to have higher levels of anti social behaviour and non-compliant passengers. Further bus routes along the Harrow road would likely decrease the congestion on Chamberlayne Road, and increase availability of buses for those who board on Harrow Road. These issues seem to be resolved when the 452 and/or 52 buses are diverted from Chamberlayne Road to Harrow Road instead.
There is limited anti social behaviour on my street. Most residents are older single people, including elderly residents, and young families and couples. I expect that there is an even mix of home owners and renters. There is limited traffic noise on my street, with exception of during football matches, where cars will often come down the roads repeatedly beeping horns. This doesn't happen often, I'd say a few weeks every 2 years (during EUFA and World Cup).
Local amenities in the area are fair, but could be improved upon. There is a Nandos and two small Tesco stores in Kensal Rise, and a large Sainsburys in nearby Ladbroke grove. There are a number of nice Indian and Bengali restaurants on Chamberlayne Road. There was a popular independent coffee shop too, but this closed in late 2020 and has been replaced by Gail's bakery/coffee. There is a Costa coffee shop around a minutes walk from the Gail's. Other than Costa and Gail's, there are limited affordable sandwich shops/or cafes for healthy breakfasts/lunch. Arthur's is a popular 'greasy spoon cafe which has been established in the area for decades.
It's friendly. It's upmarket
People are willing to help, always. It's friendly. It's upmarket - lots of cafes and bars, restaurants and shops including boutiques.
Shepherds Bush has a great deal of transport - a multitude of buses and many underground stations and also overground, connecting you to far and wide. We also have a great number of night buses.
On my street seems to be mostly families - it is quite diverse in having owners and renters. It can sometimes be loud with traffic but not unbearable.
The range within Shepherds Bush of local shops is immense, there is something for everyone and every need.
would be very nice to develop this area because it's well located!
We have quite a lot of offices nearby, it would be very nice to develop this area because it's well located!
Just one bus which comes not as often is desired. Willesden Junction access not easy but 10-15 Min waliking. White city 20 Min waliking
Quite empty even though it seems to be one of the biggest development to come but at the moment it could be better
Coop 5-10 minutes walking,corner shop and local shops to eat (sandwich places). Not more shops around apart from corners one
nice neighborhood and well connected.
