I feel that there are not enough trash and recycling bins on the residential streets.  

I personally love the borough but i do admit that it is not for everyone. There is a lot of culture including art, food and science.    Things that can change more bins to keep our streets clean and a larger police force to make sure we are all safe. I wish that there could be more of an effort to pick up the litter. There is a lot of garbage unfortunately. The areas with abundant restaurants, bars, and shops all have enough recycling and trash bins. I feel that there are not enough trash and recycling bins on the residential streets.    

Transport

There is way too much construction going on all around the area. With all of the construction it makes traveling in a timely manner difficult. In addition, the teenagers in the area make traveling by way of public transportation unsafe at time. The public transportation system needs a larger police force, especially during peak times. As I mentioned before, it would be great if we could get more bins so that we all keep the tube clean.

Community

The street I am in is (I am told) much devolved from its origins. Instead of being fairly nice and family-friendly, things are decaying and there's a lot of petty crime. Many of my neighbors in my street have complained about Amazon parcels being left by the door and stolen by someone. However, I am also told, by locals, that gentrification is coming in, with the hope things will be nicer in 5-10 years.  

Amenities

I enjoy living in this area because it never gets boring. There is many great things that Kensington and Chelsea has to offer. It has many good restaurants and bars and is very walkable. I would like for the city to become more aware of environmental needs. I think for being a major area it is behind in its efforts towards cleanliness. There are not enough trash bins, or recycling bins placed throughout the borough. This leads to people throwing trash where ever is convenient. This is not a great impression to people visiting. I do love the food scene and think that W8 is a great place to eat and drink your way through.

It feels like a small town where everyone knows each other

Overall this is a great community to raise a child. It feels like a small town where everyone knows each other. There is a countable number of minorities in the area and everyone is up in everyone else's business. It is so safe that people can walk alone at all times and not have to be worried. Very active community.  However, the bid drawback are the tourists. They, too, are everywhere. I hate tourists,so it definitely gets to me. I try to hang around outside towards the evening, when most tourists and pop-up salesmen are gone, and it's emptier, quieter, and an overall much nicer area. At the end of the day though, these are very minor things in the scheme of it all. It's really a wonderful area, and I think I'd still live here if I could do it all over again - it's just so accessible and so full of life and rich with culture - it is very, very London, in the best way possible.  

Transport

I use the circle line to Farringdon and it is normally a pleasant journey and very fast. The rly rains are not noisy and they arrive every 1-6 mins. I get that the underground is efficient and nice (or at least way nicer than in many other countries) but it’s still not good enough to be that expensive. Each journey is £2.40 if you don’t have a daily pass or something like that, so avoid it if you can; the bus is cheaper and still nice.

Community

I live right very close to Hyde Park. It's huge and beautiful. I love the vibe and atmosphere of my street. I wish housing was more reasonable in size and pricing. My other complaint is that, not unlike many areas of large cities, it is often dirtier than I think it deserves because of the nightlife scene.  On the upside, my street has many bus stops and transportation is very easy which is a plus.

Amenities

It is very chill, relaxing, and convenient. It's also very safe. You can find restaurants, diners, supermarkets, and anything that you need basically here. But it's not that ideal for shopping or entertainment, of course, because of the high prices. There is a lot of turn over in terms of restaurants and shops due to rising rent levels but overall the stores are of high quality.

The high Street is in need of regeneration as it has suffered with Westfield opening up a couple of years ago.

I dislike the fact that there is no cinema. There are pets s and children. It is quite safe although there was a mugging. The high Street is in need of regeneration as it has suffered with Westfield opening up a couple of years ago.

Transport

The transport links are good. Several bus routes regularly stop by. There is a good tube service but the tube station does NOT have a lift or escalator. It can get very busy especially during rush hour.

Community

The people who live on my street are all owners and some are serviced apartments. A lot of families live on my street. There is a tiny , pocket handkerchief sized garden. It is a relatively quiet area very near to good transport links and local amenities.

Amenities

There is a park which is very popular called Holland Park. That has a playground. There is no cinema but the shops are quite good although a lot of them have shut down. We like any other area have been affected by COVID -19 so social distancing is in place. There are gyms but no high class restaurants just your average McDonalds.
