A lot of the tower blocks are somewhat old and worn down, making regeneration a must for the future, not inherently a bad thing but something to note.

A lot of the tower blocks are somewhat old and worn down, making regeneration a must for the future, not inherently a bad thing but something to note.

Transport

Buses in the area pass through the streets often so travelling by bust is great, however the nearest train station is somewhat of a far walk so not ideal. A closer station would improve the area greatly as as of now most people are solely reliant on bus.

Community

Overall living in the area is decent as mentioned you dont need to travel fo far due all of the local amenities. Parking is also amazing because of all the tower blocks and apartment buildings. However, because of the large quantity of people living here things can rowdy and loud occasionally.

Amenities

The area is pretty good, theres a nice range of stores and businesses, for instance theres a hair salon, pharmacy, Vietnamese takeaway and Londis all on the same street. Due the amount of young kids that live in the area Deptford park is the most popular place in the area alot of them going to play football. While the area has a lot to offer a closer chain supermarket would be nice.

What I like most about living in Deptford is the peace and quiet you get.

What I like most about living in Deptford is the peace and quiet you get. In addition I also like the accessible transport that you can receive in addition to the community, the only thing to dislike is the bins not being empty by the local council. The overall atmosphere of Deptford is quiet, calm and peaceful. Deptford is not in need of regeneration and is a unique place to live. The area is a suitable place for children and pets to live in.

Transport

There are a wide variety of busses to other areas, in addition to a local train station there are also good places to cycle along the road the service provided by the bus and trains are very reliable and very effective for the community and the services are clean however the traffic depends on if it is after kids have come out of school or going to school then it gets busy. The problems Deptford faces in terms of transport is the lack of an underground station which would help the community and lack of night buses being reduced.

Community

The good aspects of living on my street is the peace and quiet you receive from the local area, crime is very low in Deptford, most of people whomst live in Deptford are renting from the local council, however when it comes to parking in the flats there is no space available and there is no nearby parking facilities to use, the bins within the flats get filled up quickly leading to overflow which is a common issue. Due to not being in the big city of London there is minimal traffic noise and minimum anti social behaviour as Deptford is a quiet area

Amenities

There are a range of independent shops along the street alongside an independent Chinese restaurant with plenty of available seating, there is also a Mcdonalds and a KFC and an independent chicken shop on the main road, this accommodates for the restaurants along the road, there are several open spaces most noticeably Deptford park, it is a big luxurious space and is never packed as there is always a space to hang around at. An interesting local area is Deptford market, it is a big place with a wide variety of things to purchase, there is also a library, cinema and gym located within the area. In addition there is also a national rail station and local buses nearby.

There are the beginnings of a community atmosphere

There are the beginnings of a community atmosphere with a few options for children etc. but overall people keep to themselves.

Transport

It’s very close to a railway but there is no stop nearby. Tube station is a good walk away and buses are very temperamental.

Community

It’s a nice quiet street that doesn’t get much foot traffic which makes it a peaceful place to live. Parking spaces are very limited.

Amenities

There are a few fast food options like KFC. Good childcare with a nearby nursery and skate park is good for children. Not many shopping options.
