Ealing is a pet and family friendly borough with a Variety of green parks and spaces for people to enjoy.
The aspect that I dislike the most is the idea that the council are more financially focused and driven,since there is a large amount of planning permissions submitted and in the pipeline for tall story building to be introduced that would break and ruin the general aesthetics and feel of the area. The area is suitable for children and is there a good number of schools present in and around the area. Ealing is a pet and family friendly borough with a Variety of green parks and spaces for people to enjoy. Safety in general is on par,however with the surrounding lower income boroughs (Acton/Shepards Bush,Southall,Hanwell) there is an uprise in the numbers of thefts and burglaries happening at the moment.
The borough of Ealing has a large transport link with the likes and selections of a variety of bus routes,over ground and underground (central line),together with newly incorporated cycle routes that has been out in place. Traffic is prominent in the area,however there is a sense of smooth flow in regards to it. An issue that would make a major difference is the link to get the Wimbledon via the underground network. (One need to travel into the city/Earls Court,only to go out of the city to get to Wimbledon).
The Road and streets in around the centre of Ealing Broadway station tend to be in a terrible state in general (Large potholes,uneven road and cracked surfaces. The General amount of bustops around the station makes it quite difficult to travel around the station due to the overal congestion that it creates. The overall cleanliness of the streets could be looked at by the council as the further you move towards West Ealing,the worst it gets. Most of the properties around my area tend to be estate agent rentals (Large selection of Victorian Houses converted into singular flats) ,with a good few private family owned properties.
Ealing and Ealing Broadway have a selection of various high street (chains) and local independent stores and shops,together with an array of restaurants and pubs in the area. There an element of middle eastern restaurants the closer you move to West-Ealing,together with a few european super markets. There is a feel and sense of independent handcraft/creative stores missing,due to a large amount of chains being present.
The area is quite upmarket, very leafy and green and peaceful and there is a good sense of community especially round Autumn and Christmas.
Parents and children can sometimes be entitled and overbearing though not too much. As mentioned, the Lane can be a bit twee with the local mums congregating in matching Cath Kidston etc but they're harmless. The area is quite upmarket, very leafy and green and peaceful and there is a good sense of community especially round Autumn and Christmas. Definitely suitable for both children and pets, with plenty of green open spaces to run around. I certainly feel safe of an evening. I don;t think there is much need of regeneration though I would imagine some developer will always find a way.
Brilliant transport options. Tube, overland, national rail and buses. Excellent bike routes through leafy parks and cycle highways. Ealing Broadway particularly well connected for transport with District, Central and GWR trains into town and heathrow. Bus routes take you anywhere, whether into town or out to Uxbridge, Brentford, Hounslow, Ruislip, Wembley, Harrow. District line is a little erratic lately, and you can find yourself sitting in a train in the platform for 20 minutes if hou mistime it in the morning. GWR fast and regular into Paddington. Buses are regular and reliable, sometimes busy but never really packed to the gills. Traffic tends to be concentrated on the main roads, A40, Great West Road etc plus the usual build up round schools and stations during rush hour.
Fantastic street to live on, i'm very lucky. There tend to be mostly owners in the large single occupancy family homes round here, with some renters in the 1940s/50s blocks of art deco ish flats scattered around. There are more of the family homes being converted into luxury flats of late but this doesn't seem to detract from the area as yet. Very little traffic noise, school drop off can be a pain unless you're walking or cycling but it always will be. Street cleaning is done regularly and the bin collections are quick and quiet. There was a spate of anti social behaviour some months ago, with a spate of bicycles being stolen, catalytic converters being removed under broad daylight and local school kids being a bit noisy but really they were in high spritis rather than anything truly untoward. I feel safe here and i feel safe walking home at night in winter.
Lovely area, great little lane for shopping though can be quite 'twee' and expensive. apart from that, there's a real sense of community and a village-y atmosphere. Just further down the other side of the hill is Ealing Broadway,which has the standard high street shops but also Dickens Yard with lovely independent cafes and restaurants. Lovely leafy areas and parks with tennis courts etc. All in all, a nice area.
There has been a lot of redevelopment which has been extremely disruptive.
Lack of cohesion and the police are disgraceful
The bus routes are good connecting Uxbridge to Shepherds Bush and surrounding areas. There are plenty of transport links
Amenities are available 24/7. There has been a lot of redevelopment which has been extremely disruptive.
There are numerous parks, the lido, cafes and hairdressers. The area is well served by Sainsbury’s and Waitrose supermarkets - with Jacobs passage a little -known walkway over the railway tracks connecting the shop and high street- and transport links are good into Central London and HS2 will boost the convenience further still. However, West Ealing shopping is not what it used to be these days with Halifax bank, M&S, Woolworths, MarkOne, BHS and indoor market all closed now. There is a nice Japanese restaurant, Haru and modernised Salvation Army hall off the main high street. There’s a popular mosque and large church. There are traditional barrow boys at fruit, veg and flowers stalls still and nowadays there’s a farmers market on Saturdays also.
Lovely parks near by, great for children and pets.
