What I love about Chiswick is its green spaces, the proximity to the river, and the architecture.

What I love about Chiswick is its green spaces, the proximity to the river, and the architecture. I love that it is cosmopolitan, both in its population and the services available. It’s relatively clean and it feels safe. The state primary schools are good to brilliant, but maybe secondary school Chiswick School needs a little help. There are good private schools. Hounslow and Ealing Boroughs seem all too keen on selling space for ugly advertising towers and high rise tower blocks, ruining what makes Chiswick so special in the process.

Transport

Chiswick has an excellent bus service along the High Road, and some key routes in nearby places. I feel this service is not as good as it has been in the recent past. There are 3 tube stations in the area, all served by the District line; Turnham Green being the main station. Piccadilly line stops there only late late evenings, but it would be great if that service was extended to cover all hours, as this station is extremely busy. There are two Overground stations too, and Chiswick railway station, of course, making Chiswick a very well served area. Sadly the A4 cuts Chiswick in half, and is often very congested, causing big problems.

Community

My quiet street is very nice. We have a great community spirit with email- and WhatsApp groups to help each other. The street is predominantly populated by families who own their house. Parking is unusually good, the layout of the street works in our favour. You can usually park outside or near your house, but there are not many spare places at any time. The bin situation is very poor indeed, on this Ealing Borough side of Chiswick. A couple of years ago the decision was made to cut the rubbish and recycling collection from weekly to every two weeks. We were issued with two massive wheelie bins for this purpose, and the look of Chiswick was drastically made so much worse. Most front gardens now look awful, they are simply too small to house these industrial sized bins, and, sitting in your front rooms, you can no longer look out into your gardens, the bins are in the way. I am gutted that so much money has been spent on this venture, to save (?) money long term. I know that many people still have to take their cars to Sainsbury’s recycling centre, because bi-monthly collection isn’t enough, and so adding to congestion and pollution. I also wonder what happened to all the old, mainly plastic, bins. Were they recycled?

Amenities

Chiswick has a great range of shops, normally. What made Chiswick stand out for many years were lots of brilliant independent shops. W4 has been blessed with a huge range of quality restaurants, and nice pubs; it’s been said Chiswick High Road boasts more restaurants than any other high street. During 2018 things started to change, with some shops closing, and by the end of 2019 many shop- and restaurant premises were empty. Even long established shops and chains had gone. Chiswick still seems to have fared better in this respect than its neighbours. On the other hand, the parks of Chiswick have improved massively in the last ten years, both in therms of planting, and in play equipment for children and teenagers, the playground on Acton Green being a wonderful example. The walking paths along the river are also extremely popular. There are places to play football, netball and tennis. We could do with more public toilets and drinking fountains.

It’s particularly family-friendly, with lots of kids clubs and activities around

Chiswick is known as a relatively affluent area and it has a mixed demographic: families, young professionals, retired people etc. It’s particularly family-friendly, with lots of kids clubs and activities around. Crime rate is low.

Transport

There are several tube stations and train stations that service the area, and lots of bus stops around, so it’s very well connected. The district like can be a bit slow and infrequent, but generally runs well. The only irritating thing is that the Piccadilly line only stops at Turnham Green between the hours of 10:30pm and 6:45am - give us the Piccadilly line permanently please, TFL!

Community

I love my street - it’s quiet, it’s in between two tube stations, my neighbours are all really nice and there’s always lots of parking available. Bin collections are regular and efficient. The only downside is that it’s the Borough of Ealing, which is more expensive council tax than Hounslow (which serves the other part of Chiswick)

Amenities

Chiswick has a great selection of shops, restaurants, fast food eateries and pubs to suit all budgets. There is a good mix of both independents and chains, but the most popular places by far are the independent places such as Outsider Tart, Lara and La Trompette. I would say the only thing missing is another bar - there’s only one proper bar, and it could do with another to give it some competition!

I love the privacy and quietness but dislike the lack of community spirit.

I love the privacy and quietness but dislike the lack of community spirit. The atmosphere is bubbly . It is suitable for all including OAP's who can access local cafes, parks, leisure centres, bars etc.

Transport

The area is very well served by local transport with good transport links. The bus service for some of the buses needs to be more reliable and regular particularly the E3 route. the The buses should be better scheduled so avoid 3 buses at the same time or within close proximity leaving customers to wait for very long for the next bus.

Community

Parking is terrible on my street and the disable parking bays are creating an even bigger problem as the disable bays take up 2 parking bays space which is unnecessary. The bin collectors are very inconsiderate and not take the extra bag if placed along side the bin due to not having space in the bin. This has created a problem with the foxes which are now strolling down the streets as they are aware of where there next meal is coming from. It feels very restrictive in your home when you are have neighbours knocking your door and reporting you to the local authority for having small family gatherings or talking in your home during normal hours. We have a mixture of home owners, renters, couple and families residing on my street.

Amenities

My local area have a wide variety of high end shops including boutiques and restaurants, friendly bars with live music and lovely well maintained parks for picnics. You are not limited to the type of cuisine and dining options. The area has a range of family freindly restaurants and leisure places. The high road is particularly popular with a bustily night life both weekdays and weekends. It is a great for socialising and meeting new people. The area could do more high street clothing shops and larger Waitrose and Savers shop.
