If you are looking for a place to call home in London, the Borough of Newham is a great option. It is located in east London and has plenty to offer residents. In this guide, we will take a closer look at what makes Newham an attractive place to live. We will also explore some of the top areas in the borough and provide information on local universities and schools. Read on for more information!
Local shops, restaurants, bars and open spaces are nearer to find. The project itself has a small open space for the children to play outdoors. We have a good convenience and availability of transport links. Upton Park station is at the 11 min. of walk from the project/development. We have easy access to Eastham and Greenstreet for local markets where we can buy nearly all kinds of stuff including groceries, clothes, furniture and all other necessities except the big brands. We have Stratford and Westfield nearby for big shopping so this can be ignored.
The people are from a mixed community and most of them are cooperative. They discuss their problems and try to solve them themselves. Bin collection is on time and we see rarely anti-social behaviour. Low traffic noise.
We have parking availability issues as all of the residents do not have underground or even street parking permits. Sometimes, when people park on the street, the burglars break the car windows and steal things they want.
Please review your development:
DEVELOPMENT ( GOOD/BAD)
Overall, this development is safe to live in especially for those who have young children. It has a modern design with large glass windows welcoming the sunlight to enter all corners. There is greenery given in front that increases freshness and beauty. It is populated so we need some more facilities like more CCTV cams on the ground floors or at least the residents living on the ground floor near the entrance should be allowed to install them. The facilities are good. There should be arrangements for meetings for the residents or at least virtual meetings should be done to solve the problems or issues.
The building management is fair. Sometimes we don’t know how and whom to complain. We do not get a reply to the issues. If we need some repair or maintenance we are not answered on time. We have to call or email so many times or wait longer. Finally, we have to solve it at our own expense. Front door locks are sub-standard. Rooms do not have locks. The room doors are built in such a way that we could not arrange a lock to install into them.
On the whole, it is good to live in. The issues can be solved if a little more attention is given to by the management.
