The atmosphere of the W12 area has, over time, become more cosmopolitan
The atmosphere of the W12 area has, over time, become more cosmopolitan and trendier pop up establishments have made themselves felt. The massive regeneration of the whole area started with the Westfield Shopping Centre and has continued with the BBC conversion into luxury apartments and the creation of the massive upmarket 'White City Living Area'. This huge regeneration has imbued the area with a safer feeling from that which may have been prevalent 30 years ago. Pet Owners are well serviced by vets in the area as well as the several large parks of Shepherds Bush Green, Wormwood Scrubs and Little Wormwood Scrubs.
There is a very comprehensive range of transportation links serving the W12 area. The bus network, including the Night Bus network is extensive and the White City Bus Station located at White City/Westfield Shopping Centre is a perfect point where most parts of London can be reached. The W12 area is amply serviced by the Central Line which cuts across right across the whole of London as well as the Hammersmith and City Line. The London Overground also serves Shepherds Bush thus enabling travellers to easily access all part of London and the surrounding areas. All transport links and outlets are easily accessible the the shopping and commuting public that can enjoy regular and consistent services.
This area is remarkably quiet given that it is just of the relatively busy Wood Lane that connects Shepherds Bush withHarrow Road to the north. There is seldom any noticeable crime and this may be influenced by the fact that there is a strong 'community ethic' which is evident in the number of neighbourhood watch schemes and online communities that are focussed on the region. Most family make up of residents in this road is mixed and reflects the nature of the street that contains both maisonettes down on side and houses down the other. The near proximity of hospitals and specifically the Imperial College London campus and laboratories result in a high number of younger people that rent in the area though there are plenty of established older people who have clearly made this place their home all their lives.
The W12 area is ideally located to be within a very easy reach of London's Oxford Street and West End. The London Underground Central line cuts a direct route across London from Shepherds Bush through to the City. This connects the massive Westfield Shopping Centre in Shepherds Bush (the largest in-city shopping centre in Europe) with the world famous shopping areas of Oxford Street and Bond Street. As well as excellent smaller shops in Shepherds Bush which cater to a wide variety of local needs, there is also an abundance of restaurants and eateries that satisfy an extensive range of local and international tastes. Apart from the large Shepherds Bush Green space which was not long ago redeveloped, just to the north there is the huge space of Wormwood Scrubs which easily plays host to many outdoor games that local residents indulge in and is also a massive facility for dog lovers and nature loves. It's sister, the littler Little Wormwood scrubs is next door which is a lovely manured garden with play areas for children An international Hotel, the Dorsett and the Ibis , as well as the Hilton International provide ample facility for tourists and locals like and adds to the comopolitan feel that the area has. With it's ample transportation links, several hospitals in the area, it's not easy to immediately think of any facilities this location lacks.
The local transport of the area and its connectivity is incredibly helpful although sometimes esp on Fridays and Saturdays it can get incredibly busy
This area is completely safe although there have been instances of racism by the police in this area to BAME people. For kids however it is very friendly and positive.
The local transport of the area and its connectivity is incredibly helpful although sometimes esp on Fridays and Saturdays it can get incredibly busy. Despite this however the proximity to transport links does not prove to have any issues and there are many stations and bus stops around the area. I genuinely believe it is one of the easiest areas to access in London.
Parking availability in the area on a whole is positive however on some days it could be increasingly harder to find parking spaces. One good thing is the fact that there are no congestion charges in our area making it easy access and affordable unlike a lot of areas in London. The facts this area is not an area with the congestion charge has a positive effect on the local businesses in the area as more customers are willing to travel here.
All restaurants and bars are either incredibly impressive or impressive. The quality is of high standards and has been particularly good during this Covid-19 phase where you can evidently see how serious they are all taking the situation as. Furthermore the local areas are eco friendly and also importantly family friendly. One area which they can improve on is the lack of closed off areas for the public to sit down and eat or even rest. I think an area closed off of cars etc could be ideal and incredibly positive for the local businesses etc
There is a lot of traffic but there is a good link of buses and trains
The area is suitable for children as there are a lot of nearby parks and schools and other children for them to play with
There is a lot of traffic but there is a good link of buses and trains. Trains are the most reliable during busy times
There isn’t much parking unless you have a resident permit otherwise you have to pay a lot of money for parking which is a negative
There are a lot of fast food places and local supermarkets in the area. There is also a big gym with a swimming pool. However, there is a lack of open space as its not too far from central so its a busy area but transport is really good
I love the big shopping market

You have a communal feel in our road. People seem to know each other and look out for each other.

The community spirit is what I like most and there is an increasingly progressive feel to the area with the Imperial College campus nearby.
