Living by such a body of water is a privilege few Londoners are lucky enough to enjoy.

The most appealing aspect of the area is definitely the proximity to the river Thames. Living by such a body of water is a privilege few Londoners are lucky enough to enjoy. The area can get eerily quiet at night, which can be a bit scary. Having said this, families are plentiful and the area is relatively safe. Many families have pets and you can be sure to bump into a fair few residents out walking their dog at any given time of day.

Transport

The area has decent transport links, with two overground stations and one underground stations within walking distance. However, to those residing further north-east, the journey is quite a trek. Bus routes servicing the area are plentiful, and reasonably regular. They are well maintained, and manage rush hour times well with no customer left on the curb.

Community

Parking availablity is reasonable - the majority of residents park off-road in gated car parks. Single yellows are plentiful and abundantly available during the evenings outside of restricted hours. The area is blissfully quiet and does not suffer anti-social behaviour often, although occasionally this does occur. This is a great area for families and indeed many families reside on this street.

Amenities

The local area boasts some stunning views over the river Thames, and there are a number of green open spaces situated within comfortable walking distance. Nestled in the heart of SE16 is Stave Hill Ecological Park - a beautiful and tranquil open expanse, frequented by locals and visitors to the area alike for its scenic greens and water features. Rotherhithe tunnel, only one of two river crossings (for cars) in East London is located conveniently nearby for a quick and easy trip north of the river. For those without a car, the area has fairly good transport links with two overground stations and one underground, and a number of bus routes servicing the entire area. Surrey Quays shopping centre is the local hang-out for the area youth, and a great place to grab a cheeky takeaway. The area could use a station to the North East, as all train stations are clustered to the south west.

My hopeful Community; a Commodius place to live.

What i like most about my area is the ease and convenience of the local shops and wide rangeof ammenities including a GP and pharmacy situated alongside eachother which is a minute walk away from my house?street. I also love the fact that there is a open park in which people of the commuity can exercise e.g jogging or doing yoga. The atmosphere in my local area is very enjoyable and delightful, where people are kind to each other and there is no antisocial behavior. I woudnt say that my area is trendy as its just the local community getting on about there day in a civilised manner utilising the wide range of ammenities available to them. The area is very much suitable for pet. This is because of the incredible amount of communal space and open park spaces in which for example people can take thier pet dogs out for walks. The area is very safe and people respect each other, altough there may be the youth being themeselves, enjoying thier youthhood, they are respectful of others and woudnt cause any havoc. I personally feel safe in my local area.

Transport

The availability of public transport in my area is really high. this benefits me really well, as I can take my kids to school every day using either DLR or the buses available in my area like the D7, 277, 135 bus routes which I mostly use for travelling around E14. There is no other major train line apart from the DLR close available to me with a 10-15 min walk. however, with the convenience of the DLR people in my area can switch the train lines to the Jubilee line. There are not may cycle routes/lanes in my area, however, it is straight forward to travel along manchester road in the isle of dogs with a bicycle , this is because it is one straight main road in which you could navigate around the isle of dogs, but also the road itself isn't too busy and is a 2 lane road with each lane running in opposite directions to each other (meaning one lane in each direction) so cyclists should feel safer on this main road. The public transport is very reliable as they run every day 7 days a week arriving every 2-7mins with the exception of Christmas day. The buses along manchester road are not 24hr service but night buses do run during the night when the day buses arent operating. The company that runs the public transport is TFL which I highly praise for their innovation and ease In which they provide to their customers. They make sure buses run evenly so no delays and also the buses themselves are new on most routes and are cleaned. In the isle of dogs, I wouldn't say there are many traffic problems, as the main roads which run along the isle of dogs are mostly quiet where there is no traffic. However, what I wish would improve with traffic in The Isle of Dogs is the opening of The Blue Bridge. When The Blue Bridge opens it causes major delays and traffic to let boats pass-through. this is extremely frustrating as it would mean kids are late for school (if it opens during morning hours) typically 15-20 mins. It also means that people arriving from the Blackwall and Poplar area cant enter the Isle of Dogs or Cubbit town area Vica versa for the drivers and commuters trying to exit the isle of dog, in this case, people typically make u-turns and navigate across the whole of the Isle of dogs heading towards Canary Wharf. Overall i would give the transport links in my area a 4.5/5, its absolutely fantastic but it loses half a point just due to traffic caused by the the blue bridge which open very rarely.

Community

I like the street and area I live on because there is close access to local amenities. Also, there is estate private parking for the residents who live in the vicinity. in addition to this, there is street parking for permit holders which is convenient as I can park on the street as well. Furthermore, people in my area are really friendly and there's no anti-social behaviour. there is also a communal area next to my house in which people can walk and go running. There is minimal traffic noise as the main road is 1 block away. On the street at my house, there is little to no traffic noise as it is a quiet road. There are some homeowners in my area but I would assume that most the locals are renters and families as there are lots of kids who go to the primary school which is situated 1 minute walk away from my house. Overall I would rate the aspects of living on my street a 5/5.

Amenities

There is a range of local amenities in my area which I will define as being convenient and useful for me. this is because they provide me with quick access/solutions to problems or needs I may have. this includes pubs, haircut barber shops, off-license convenience stores, also parks which contain a lot of greenery. I like this because it is useful for not only me but others including my neighbours where people can go for jogging, and other outdoor exercises like yoga due to the green open space in the park which is called Sir John McDougal gardens, it is popular place due to these reasons and also for kids to play in as it has a play area for kids as well. furthermore, my local area of shops also includes a GP clinic which has a pharmacy alongside it. this is incredibly convenient for the local people who are registered at the GP because people can collect their prescriptions from the pharmacy and other pharmaceutical needs they may have. Overall I would rate my local area a 5/5 due to convenience and ease.

There needs to be regenration as there isnt enough local amwnities near bye.

There needs to be regenration as there isnt enough local amwnities near bye.

Transport

There are not enough transport links in the area. Youll have to travel miles to get in the bus or train. Which is very annoying. However it is very clean. There is definitely lack of night bus.

Community

Good asoects is that it is safe to live in the area there are lots of cctv cameras which gives me a peace of mind. There are moslty couples and families living here. The bad aspect is there is sometimes anti social behaviour.

Amenities

There arent any local bars or shops or restaurants nearby. There are many open sapces which i go myslef and relax and enjoy nature.

Being Between Canary wharf and Isle of Dogs makes it a good mixture between modern commercial area and a quiet residential area
