Barking is not a bad place to live with some community spirit but it could do with more

There seems to be a drive towards social cleansing and both of my daughters have moved to Scotland.One due to lack of support from the housing department and the other due to knife crime.Barking is not a bad place to live with some community spirit but it could do with more.

Transport

I have no problems with the transport links which are excellent which appears to be in order to attract middle class workers to the area who need accommodation which is fairly close to London.

Community

Parking is a contentious issue as the council bring in parking restrictions with very little consultations with the local community.We are lucky enough to have good neighbours in this street.As anywhere the problems are caused by a small minority.

Amenities

The quality of shops is quite limited and there are too many betting shops ad charity shops. The amount of choices of restaurant is improving and is fairly diverse which is generally agreed as a good thing.Unfortunately the council seems happy to exchange council property for private‘affordable’ housing which does not seem to be available to the children of local people.

Transport is great here.

There are good local schools. There has been a few play parks opened in recent years for children too. The area feels safe & is being regenerated which is always a good sign. It is getting even nicer to live here.

Transport

Transport is great here. Buses every few minutes & local train stations that link us to wider London. Lots of cycle & footpaths linking to the cycle highways of greater london. There is a good night bus service but travel is very problematic if there is accidents on the A13 as our local service has to pass across it.

Community

Parking is bad locally, there is resident permit parking bays but still not enough parking available. Bins are collected regularly. Traffic noise is not too bad considering how close the A13 is. The local area is full of families & the elderly that have lived here since their homes have been built!

Amenities

Local shops have been in decline but there are areas of refurbishment & regeneration bringing in new companies. Barking Riverside is a popular development in the area. More doctors are needed locally though.

needs to be regenerated

I think it needs to be regenerated with more infrastructure and restaurants and cinemas.

Transport

Easily available are buses to many routes and cabs like Uber that’s very convenient and easily accessible modes of transport Metro station is also nearby .

Community

The good part is it’s a quiet residential area with all facilities and friendly neighborhood. I don’t think there is anything bad about this place

Amenities

There are amazing restaurants providing wide range of cuisine in this locality. There are 3 huge supermarkets as well.
