The atmosphere is not great in all honesty, it’s almost like the area lacks a sense of community to make it really feel like home.

The atmosphere is not great in all honesty, it’s almost like the area lacks a sense of community to make it really feel like home. That said, I don’t see any major issue raising children in the area, there are a range of schools and open areas.

Transport

The availability of transport in the area is standard, no better or worse than you would expect from London. As far as I am aware there are one or two train stations within walking-ish distance, perhaps cycling distance. Not an abundance of night buses but I don’t find myself in situations where I am required to ride a night bus though so I have no issue with it

Community

A good aspect is ability to park. I never have trouble parking the car after work which I reckon I take for granted because gosh at this point I don’t think I’d Ben able to handle parking the car a road away. A bad aspect is being near a busy road is we hear a lot of traffic and receive a good bit too. The houses are mostly owned I would assume with a range of homeowners from couples, families, singles

Amenities

A number of locations to buy food which is ideal for somebody as lazy as I am, don’t like to travel too far for anything really! The kids are always at the parks which seem to be quite popular in the summer months as everyone wants to be out catching the sun. I personally feel the area lacks activities as there aren’t many things one can do for recreation in the area besides going to the park.

For me it has always been a great location and there have always been lots of useful shops and restaurants

I have lived on this street since 1972 and it has slowly moved up-market as people were priced out of Kensington and Holland Park. For me it has always been a great location and there have always been lots of useful shops and restaurants, the Bush Theatre, Bush Hall not far away, and a perfect locale to leave as well. In the morning it is about 20 minutes by taxi to Heathrow and it is very easy to get into central London. Our local MP is excellent and Hammersmith and Fulham council works well and for the residents of the borough. My area is quiet except for the occasional helicopter and in my time living here it has only improved.

Transport

There are busses on Shepherds Bush Road, Shepherds Bush Green, Holland Road and Hammersmith Road that will take you anywhere. There is the Central Line and the Overground at Shepherds Bush and the District Line can be connected next to the Olympia.

Community

There is pid parking and Permit Parking, the bins are collected twice a week (Tuesday dn Friday) and the Recycling is collected on Tuesday with the council providing the bags. The streets are clean and I think Hammersmith and Fulham do an excellent job . There are owners and renters with the council owning a few houses. My street has only large Victorian houses which have been turned into flats. The houses in adjacent streets are smaller and are probably mostly owner occupied. The rents are a bit too high for students and I imagine that singles, couples, and families with only a few children live on my street. Although there are cars passing, I am never aware of traffic noise as it doesn't warrant the word "traffic". Passersby are mostly people in the neighbourhood.

Amenities

I am perfectly situated on a broad street with wide pavements in a neighbourhood that has small shops for groceries, cleaners, a pharmacy, and small restaurants. It is quiet though near the bustle of Shepherds Bush where there is the Central line as well as the Overground along with Westfield shopping centre. The Bush has masses of shops, banks, petrol, everything you might want and at the other end there are Uxbridge Road and Goldhawk Road: two excellent roads with restaurants, food shops and The Shepherds Bush Market. If I go in the opposite direction there is the Olympia with its exhibitions and the Overground and the District Line station. There are buses at the Bush, on Holland Road, and in front of the Olympia that traveling all directions and Holland Park, Shepherds Bush Green, and Brook Green, where there is a big Tesco, are within walking distance.

in need of regeneration! is it so close to beautiful neighbourhoods and it feels like missing out. there is potential but definitely need work

Transport

I don't personally use public transport much to know but the commute system i believe is good enough for the area. the is luck of cycle lanes though making it not safe to cycle

Community

mostly owners i believe the particular road feels safe in the morning but not so much at night. there is anti social behaviour and not so much safety

Amenities

there are plently of shops and facilities in the area including westfield centre across the motorway. notting hill with local produce markets close by as well

The area is average to low quality. Not good for families and children.
