I definitely wouldn't describe it as trendy; there needs to be more up-market bars, cafes and some shopping.

I love how green it is, you can always hear the birds, there are loads of trees along the residential streets and nice parks for dogs/ recreation. I like that mostly families, young couples and retired people live here (ie no students/ people who aren't invested in their local area). I think there is a genuine community spirit. I do think there is some need for regeneration, particularly on the main roads and for amenities. I definitely wouldn't describe it as trendy; there needs to be more up-market bars, cafes and some shopping. However, there are some really nice Portuguese and Mediterranean cafes and food outlets, which adds to a sense of definition to the local area and community feel

Transport

Transport is excellent, there are a number of different tube and rail stations within 5-15 minutes walk. Lots of buses that are pretty regular. The streets themselves are incredibly dirty with a lot of litter and piles of fly-tipping, and dog mess left on the street, which makes walking anywhere unpleasant. There are plenty of cycle lanes and Santander bike stations. Roads are really busy during the working week, and residential roads are often used as cut-throughs in rush hour. Noise doesn't seem to be a problem too often.

Community

It's mostly families and working couples on my street. I find it to be really quiet and friendly. Thankfully it has a one-way system so is rarely used as a cut-through by traffic, making it even quieter and undisturbed by cars. There is often litter on the streets (there are no public bins) and the communal waste from the estate often spills over but is then not picked up. There is regular fly-tipping of furniture next to one of the communal bins. It is a really pet friendly area, which makes it feel very homely and friendly and build a community spirit. There can sometimes be noise from barking but it's short-lived. Someone does leave bread out for the pigeons which looks dirty and pigeons gathering then foul on the streets, and dogs go after the bread; I'd rather that was discouraged.

Amenities

In my immediate area (Stockwell) there are lots of independent newsagents, chicken shops, a big supermarket, and a selection of budget gyms. A number of NHS GP surgeries, dentists, and vets are accessible, as well as a library. There are plenty of small-medium sized parks. Popular spots are the parks, but lots of people tend to congregate around newsagents or outside fast-food outlets. I think we could do with more coffee shops, more restaurants and more evening venues like nice bars rather than watering-hole pubs. I think there could be more spaces for teenagers and children to hang out. More art galleries/ creative spaces would be nice or a cinema/ theatre. There aren't any "highstreet" shops like fashion or homewares - you have to go to Clapham or Brixton. An outdoor market would be great (there is a farmers market in Oval but it's small and incredibly expensive). I don't think there are enough waste bins dotted along the streets. There are some lovely community gardening projects if you know where to look for them!

The things I love the most of living in Nine Elms/Vauxhall is the transport, shops and supermarkets

I live in a secondary street, however I think the cars in the main street circulate a bit too fast.

Transport

A new tube station: nine elms is been built, it was supposed to be finished by 2020, however due to COVID, it might not be functional until mid 2021 or even later. It is also very close to Vauxhall station that has very good bus, tube and train connections.

Community

Great things about the neighbourhood where I live is that is a secondary street, therefore there is not that much noise due to traffic (buses), so overall very quiet. There are plenty of small shops, mostly family run shop - if you need the like of tesco or sainsburies - they are not far away either. There are families with one kid, and couples, I haven't met a lot of single people in the area.

Amenities

The things I love the most of living in Nine Elms/Vauxhall is the transport, shops and supermarkets in the area. What I dislike is that sometimes the street are a bit dirty, so I truly believe that our council can do a better job at cleaning the street and keeping them cleaned.

A lot of traffic noise

Like - closeness to certain places Dislike - everything else

Transport

Transport links are great though the buses are always busy in the morning and you have to wait for a few, sometimes they don't open the doors. Could be better in that sense. A lot of noise from traffic on Wandsworth road which is a very negative side.

Community

A lot of traffic noise, kids playing outside all the time without adult supervision, not very good behaviour on my block.

Amenities

There are a lot of shops around which is quite good, not that many bars around Wandsworth Road Station but Clapham isn't that far.

What I like about Stockwell is it only takes 10 minutes by bike to visit the Major attractions like the Big Ben.
