A wide of variety of shops, green and grassy parks, amazing restaurants and fast food places

I would say the atmosphere is overall joyful. It might not be that full of interactive people, but the surroundings are astonishing.

Transport

The availability of public transport in our area is great. There are two train stations near us, one being Blackhorse Road and the other being St James Street Station. This makes it easy and quick for us residents to travel to our desired destination. There are also multiple bus stops located around my area which make it simple for us to make a journey using the buses. The buses usually come every 15 minutes or less so even if you miss it, you wont have to wait long before the next one arrives. The streets and houses in our area are quite clean and well managed and traffic is not too busy.

Community

The parking availability in my street is excellent. The reason I say that is there is always a space for you to park your vehicle, even at busy times. My neighbours are mostly people that have received this flat from the Waltham Forest Council. Some of them are here temporarily but for most of them, this is their permanent accommodation.

Amenities

My local area is beautiful. A wide of variety of shops, green and grassy parks, amazing restaurants and fast food places, a pleasant market where you can find and buy loads of essentials, high quality gyms and fitness facilities. One of the popular areas is a park where people love to go and relax in summer time.

The only thing missing is a seating area to sit on your day out and admire the surroundings

The area is very modern and creates a very homey atmosphere and vibe which is inviting. The area is very safe and caters to children and has many local day cares and schools.

Transport

There are many bus stops and trains stations in my area that are very easy to access. They aren’t overly populated and it is quick and easy to get to the train station and bus stations. The service is somewhat regular and the traffic in the area is quick minimal, minus the school rush in the mornings.

Community

The amount of parking spaces on my road are sparse, but the people who live here can park which is all that matters. There is not traffic as it isn’t a main road and it is a very clean area. The neighbourhood is very inviting and friendly and are very social with the other neighbours. Many families live on my road and it is close to a primary school which is very local.

Amenities

In my local area there is great access to shops which provides anything you may need on a daily basis. There are many open spaces and greenery sightings which are building up the area. Specifically, St James streets is transforming into a populated area due to the amenities and the new crates attract many people. The only thing missing is a seating area to sit on your day out and admire the surroundings.

Run down area

Run down area that you never quite feel fully safe in. The kind of place that makes you want to close your curtains and double check you’ve locked your door.

Transport

Plenty of bus stops along the main road which goes right through E17, so it’s easy enough to catch a bus to Stratford from which you can get pretty much anywhere. Some nearby overground stations too within walking distance, but going to Stratford gives better transport options.

Community

Very near the local primary school and nursery. Mostly couples and families living about, renting I think. Not great being so close to the main road though, as there’s still traffic noise and pollution.

Amenities

Variety of small fast food food shops (think chicken shops, takeaway pizza, chinese), and convenience stores and a small Co-op nearby. There are some small nearby parks as well, but it’s also located well between larger areas of green like the wetlands, marshes, and Walthamstow forest.
