There is great disparity between certain parts.

Likes: Central location and ease of access to other areas. Everything required on a daily basis is close to hand. High Street has a reasonably buzzing, young, trendy vibe especially at night. Area generally accommodates most age ranges. Dislikes: The overall feeling and look of the area is that it is in desperate need of a major regeneration programme. There is great disparity between certain parts. Areas that have a high concentration of renters are dirty, run down, neglected, look and feel like inner city ghettos. Other parts where private ownership is high are cleaner, better maintained and look ‘posh.’

Transport

Good variety and selection of transport links including buses, tubes, overground stations and cycle routes. Generally all are reasonably reliable, however rush hour brings great overcrowding especially where tube service is concerned. Clapham Common station which is heavily used, cannot cope with normal average rush hour capacity always leading to queues extending right outside the station.

Community

Good aspects: Fairly central location making it easy to access other areas. Good location for work availability. Good transport links and good variety of local amenities. Clapham Common offers a pleasant open space with some leisure activities. Bad aspects: Area is too densely populated often resulting in overall poor quality of life. Outside areas are either neglected or poorly maintained. Anti social behaviour is common and insufficiently challenged. Excessive noise pollution. Parking is problematic due to closeness to high street and Clapham Common. Residents are mainly families and renters.

Amenities

A mixed variety of local shops on a buzzing high street, including many good quality independent traders. These predominantly include pubs, bars, restaurants, eateries. There are also chemists, post office, stationery shop, supermarkets, coffee shops, carpet shop, hardware, DIY shops, library and gyms. Clapham Common itself is an extremely popular open space used for organised events as well as by locals. There is a lack of affordable clothes shops in this area.

I love the local atmosphere it is mainly very uplifting and energetic give you a real feel of community. It is quite up market but there is still all the amazing self employed stalls and I just love them

Transport

There are two tube stations round the corner that are easy to access with Brixton being wheelchair accessible rush hour can be a bit tricky but thankfully the staff are always kind and extremely helpful it is always as clean as can be I know the staff try there best and that's all anyone can ask for. There is a very wide range of busses thankfully takeing you all over London which is so very helpful.

Community

It is a really good area to live in and kind people sometimes is can be very loud with police sirens but that is understandable I think mainly family's and couples live on our street as well as a wonderful place called evolve housing and support that help young people with housing issue and what not. The social behaviour of some people can be quite nerve racking at times but I have never felt unsafe

Amenities

There is a high range of shops near me as we are also so close to Brixton we have shop's ranging from Poundland to Sainsbury's and Morley's to TK MAX . All these shops and there workers help so much with in the community another thing I love about our area is the feel of community there are so many self started and self owned restraints and stalls that when you go out you really feel like your helping the community and the people around. I think one of the most loved places in our area is the skate park it's always amazing to walk by and see all these young people gathering and having a laugh such talented people a real feel of community space nice to just site and watch on a lovely day.

it's at times very quiet and more families have moved to houses around the area so it has become more family friendly over time.

It's overall a safe place like any other place you will see people that may make it seem like a strange area but, we rarely have bad things happening in the area it's at times very quiet and more families have moved to houses around the area so it has become more family friendly over time.

Transport

I personally think it's quite in terms of the tube and buses around the area they come every 3 to 5 mins it gives you enough time to get to a place if you are running late. I haven't seen big issues to consider appart from sometimes it can be quite busy so it's difficult to get inside the transport in the mornings, rush hour time however, after 9 it slowly goes back to normality.

Community

I do feel at times it doesn't feel safe at night it seems there's a few more gangs at certain times sometimes ramdom people can approach you and make you uncomfortable because you just don't know what they want and how they will react as most seemed under the influence of alcohol or even drugs.

Amenities

The area I live is very diverse in terms of shops you can find a variety of different types of restaurant and cafe shops which are cosy and comfortable to just have a friendly catch up with a freind. The area is quite vibrant regardless of the time of day people come from other places to try the bars and clubs near places such at Brixton Clapham ect. It's a placed filled with hidden suprises you just never know what you will find or even try! I do think there could be more things for young people to do in the future as is evident more young people like this area.

Good thing is that there is a mix between everything- shops (local and franchise) and parks for leisure and having a good time.
