Proximity to bus stops is excellent, with several on the roads immediately outside of our home.

The area in general (Clapham south/ Clapham) is very desirable and trendy however whilst my immediate neighbourhood is lovely in places and remains a desirable spot to live, there are certainly aspects of it that need redevelopment, refurbishment and a boost in amenities. My only concern would be a further hike in property and rental prices, which are already quite high in the area

Transport

Proximity to bus stops is excellent, with several on the roads immediately outside of our home. However, an increased service Is needed on some of these routes, particularly the 355, which currently operates fairly infrequently operates as mostly a single decker. This is a particular issue during morning rush hour (7-9am) towards Brixton ,when this route is extremely overcrowded. Tube links are slightly less accessible in the immediate area, but access to the northern line and Victoria line is fairly straight forward. However the access to the northern line during rush our is extremely difficult and can mean waiting for up to 10-12 tubes before being able to squeeze on. This is very dangerous. Road and cycle routes in the area area are good.

Community

Good- parking availability in the estate, good mix of zone 2 centrality and leafy suburb in the immediate area Bad - estate in immediate need of refurbishment, very run down and spoils the aesthetic of the rest of the area, lots of amenities that have closed and are now left to waste, quite dark around the estate at night which can feel unsafe - could benefit from lighting additions in the area. The area is mainly renters (private shares, families and council tenants) however also some owned homes in the immediate neighbourhood.

Amenities

In the immediate area there are a couple of local chain shops which are good in terms of essential shopping. However there are quite a few amenities that have closed in the local area (Clapham park) including pubs, take aways and post office. Whilst there is a good array of shops, bars and restaurants in short walk away (Clapham, Balham) the immediate area (Clapham south) could benefit from redevelopment To include of these immenities. This particularly applies to coffee shops and independent stores. Clapham Common is the closest and most popular area in terms of outdoor space and amenities.

Balham is the new Kensington

Balham is nice and ipmarket area with very closely connected to the posh areas south of the river such as chelsea and Kensington

Transport

Balham has not one but 2 tube stations as well as a train station. So either travelling further south(gateick way) or into centre of london is very easy. Bus routes like 155 goes through Balham and connect it to the south of the river.

Community

Very quiet and nice street full of residential houses and a catholic school at the end of the street is a bonus. A small kids park by the round about with football pitch free for all within it is a super good activity ground

Amenities

Balham is famous for boutigue private eateries without hustle and bustle bug with ton of quality. You have all supermarket big brands with local distance and furthermore the leisure centre ia very nice and close by. In summer balham is stone throw away from tootin bec lido.
