I'm proud and very happy to live on the Isle of Dogs!

I love living here! Compared to many other areas of London, the area where I live in west Isle of Dogs ('the island') is primarily residential, and feels quiet, safe and peaceful. As it's only local traffic on the roads that run past me, the noise and pollution from traffic is very low. And with the river just to the west of me and docks on the other three sides, I feel surrounded by water, which probably helps to keep the air clean and fresh and adds to the sense of tranquillity. The local community is very mixed, representing a range of ethnicities, ages, family types and income levels, and everyone seems to get along quite happily. Local shopping is excellent, with a mixture of small independent shops along Westferry Rd., several supermarkets near Crossharbour and South Quay DLR, and the underground shopping malls at Canary Wharf which offer yet more supermarkets as well as numerous well-known high street brands, and all with 15 mins walk of my home! We have a number of green spaces on the island, including Sir John McDougall park, which is right on the west riverbank by the Thames Path, and Mudchute Park (& city farm) and Millwall park with its football pitches and playing fields. And beautiful Greenwich Park is only a short DLR ride away, south across (under) the river. Partly thanks to the location of the Isle of Dogs, public transport connections are probably the best of anywhere in the capitol. There are several bus routes that run around the perimeter of the island. And you're never far from a DLR station, as the line runs north-south through the centre of the island. The DLR connects you with the City to the west, to Stratford (more shopping!) and Stratford International (Eurostar to Europe!) to the north-east, and, going east, to London City Airport and as far as Beckton on the north side of the river, to Woolwich Arsenal on the south side, and to Lewisham in the south east. Also, you can interchange with the underground at Canary Wharf (Jubilee line, which runs north to the O2 dome on the Greenwich peninsula and also south, connecting with the major rail hubs of London Bridge and Waterloo). You can also change between the DLR at Greenwich station and the overground national rail services running west to London Bridge, the City and Bedford (for Luton Airport), and east into Kent. Seriously, the transport connections from the Isle of Dogs are amazing! Another thing about this area is how dynamic, forward-looking and progressive it is; in recent years numerous new residential developments have sprouted like mushrooms in the Canary Wharf area, and by New Providence Wharf, and along north Westferry Rd, South Dock and Millwall Inner Dock, and yet more are planned in the next few years (e.g. along Millwall Outer Dock), so the area is becoming increasingly residential, as well as showcasing some of the newest and most exiting modern architecture in all of London. The area always looks so modern, shiny and futuristic that you can never forget you are actually living in the 21st century - unlike in many older areas of London that probably haven't changed much in several decades at least! It's hard thinking of any negative points about living here, but I suppose one thing I could mention is that, outside of the Canary Wharf area, the number and range of options for eating and drinking seems to be rather limited. But I am confident that this situation will improve as the residential developments and population of the island continue to grow. I wish I had discovered this area many years ago, and I felt totally at home very soon after moving here. I honestly can't think of many places in London where I would rather live, if any.

What I like most about living in Deptford is the peace and quiet you get.

What I like most about living in Deptford is the peace and quiet you get. In addition I also like the accessible transport that you can receive in addition to the community, the only thing to dislike is the bins not being empty by the local council. The overall atmosphere of Deptford is quiet, calm and peaceful. Deptford is not in need of regeneration and is a unique place to live. The area is a suitable place for children and pets to live in.

Transport

There are a wide variety of busses to other areas, in addition to a local train station there are also good places to cycle along the road the service provided by the bus and trains are very reliable and very effective for the community and the services are clean however the traffic depends on if it is after kids have come out of school or going to school then it gets busy. The problems Deptford faces in terms of transport is the lack of an underground station which would help the community and lack of night buses being reduced.

Community

The good aspects of living on my street is the peace and quiet you receive from the local area, crime is very low in Deptford, most of people whomst live in Deptford are renting from the local council, however when it comes to parking in the flats there is no space available and there is no nearby parking facilities to use, the bins within the flats get filled up quickly leading to overflow which is a common issue. Due to not being in the big city of London there is minimal traffic noise and minimum anti social behaviour as Deptford is a quiet area

Amenities

There are a range of independent shops along the street alongside an independent Chinese restaurant with plenty of available seating, there is also a Mcdonalds and a KFC and an independent chicken shop on the main road, this accommodates for the restaurants along the road, there are several open spaces most noticeably Deptford park, it is a big luxurious space and is never packed as there is always a space to hang around at. An interesting local area is Deptford market, it is a big place with a wide variety of things to purchase, there is also a library, cinema and gym located within the area. In addition there is also a national rail station and local buses nearby.

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
