Many local shops and forms of transport, generally a great area

The area is suitable for children but not so much for young children because of the roads. There is not much of a play area where you can monitor the children from the comfort of your home but there are local parks which are certainly family-friendly and convenient to use. I like the closeness of the shops and convenience of local stores the most. What I dislike the most is that since the walls are really thin, you can hear cars driving or beeping in the night. But overall, it is generally a safe area.

Transport

There are many forms of transport very close by so I’m very satisfied with the availability of this. There are a range of buses, and there are quite a few tube stations which have many train lines making it more convenient to travel using this mode of transport. There are also public bicycles but regarding cycle routes, I don’t think the particular area I live has them. However, a problem with using the bus is that sometimes a bus would take extremely long to arrive. So it would be convenient and useful if there were bus times shown in the bus stands for people without access to the internet to use.

Community

There are normally families living in my area but regardless of this, the area is relatively quiet and peaceful. My neighbours are extremely friendly and reliable people. Regarding bin collections, maybe it could be done more frequently since many people use the bins, otherwise it seems fine to me.

Amenities

There are many local shops around my area which is very convenient for everyday shopping, such as Lidl, Tesco, Iceland etc. There’s no need to spend a lot on travel as it is of walking distance. The local shops and stores sell quality products with decent prices to customers so there is not much to change about them, generally. However, maybe there could be more restaurants in the area which offer food for people with different diets and lifestyles; to be inclusive and also gaining a broader range of customers.

Upcoming area of value

So far living here has been lovely. I haven't had a terrible experience so far (knock on wood) and I look forward to the new buildings being made near my house. The pathway that will be there will make the area an amazing place to walk through. Also the residents are very respectful and the noise in this area is very minimal. There are no loitering here.

Transport

There are many transport options available. There are the buses and trains can take you destinations that are very far into the city. Cycling path is available and roads are appropriate width. During rush hour there is usually a 15 to 20 minutes wait in traffic. Buses are on time 75% of the time. The DLR stations are available at many locations that are at walking distance.

Community

The houses in my area are very beautiful. Might be because they are new but I'm sure over time they will remain beautiful. The few is great and the traffic noise is almost unnoticeable. However there is one street light that shines through my window and doesn't allow me to sleep because it is so bright. So on hot days I'm still having to keep my curtains down.

Amenities

The area has many transport options at almost 5 to 10 minutes from each other. The local shops available range from nail salons to grocery stores. There is not limitation in this area, and if there are you can easily take a few minutes travel to go to your desired destination. Currently there are still residental houses being made which can be an eyesore however when it's complete the area will look very vibrant. The colour palet used for the houses are appealing and welcoming to people passing by. Many stores are under the residential buildings which make accessibility much easier.

Garbage

Transport

There are no buses tubes or overground near my area. We can not travel to upper London without being kicked out of the cycle routes due to bad drivers

Community

Very little traffic noise. Most of my area are house owners couples and families. There are a lot of parking spaces but there are no bin collections.

Amenities

There are no restaurants no bars and no local shops. I have to to draw downtown to get a quick fish and chip with the lads.
