Nice area with lots to do
I definitely like my area as it has good transport links and a lot of amenities close by which is very important to me. I wouldn't say it is an upmarket area but I can see that they are definitely trying to build it up and are attracting different types of people into the area. I would say the area is quite safe, I have never felt unsafe and would agree that it is suitable for pets and children also. There's a lot of amenities for children such as parks, the leisure centre and all the entertainment plaza in Surrey Quays.
In terms of transport, everything is close by and convenient. I have multiple bustops near my house that serve alot of areas in South London. I also have the overground and tube station within walking distance. I don't personally think there's any problems with the transport in my area, I find it all very reliable and clean but alot of traffic can build up on the main roads by Surrey Quays as it is a small area.
My area is nice to live in and I find my street to be quiet compared to others in Deptford. The main occupants tend to be elderly people or just older families that live together who own their home. There's a few parking spaces available but most are taken up by residents.
Surrey quays is a nice area that has quite a few local shops and restaurants nearby. There is a big Lidl behind my house also and a big Tesco less than 10 minutes walk away. There's two huge parks close to my house, Southwark and Deptford. Both are good for exercising as they have an outdoor gym and enough space to set up other sports like football. Surrey Quays is probably the most popular area nearby because theres a lot to do there compared to Deptford. There is a leisure centre, shopping centre and an entertainment retail park which is full of fun things to do such as cinema bowling, arcades and bingo.
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.
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.
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
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 are the beginnings of a community atmosphere
There are the beginnings of a community atmosphere with a few options for children etc. but overall people keep to themselves.
It’s very close to a railway but there is no stop nearby. Tube station is a good walk away and buses are very temperamental.
It’s a nice quiet street that doesn’t get much foot traffic which makes it a peaceful place to live. Parking spaces are very limited.
There are a few fast food options like KFC. Good childcare with a nearby nursery and skate park is good for children. Not many shopping options.
train station very close

fair bit of walking (10-15 mins) to get to any station or main bus route. But once you get there the links are great
