Rectory Park offers a collection of one, two and three bedroom apartments. The apartments benefit from a spacious and open-plan design. As well as having many green surroundings, it is also located a 15 minute bus journey away from Ealing Broadway.
Overall building design is good. However, as pointed out, parking is the big problem here. Tenants of New build houses with their own private drive think it’s ok to keep their private drives free and occupy valuable street parking that is predominantly used by the new build flat owners, who don’t have access to private bays, unless purchased during sign-up. Even then there was a very short supply to meet the demand. Consideration for street parking with the new build flats in mind, would have made such a difference.
Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:
Really lovely development situated in a rural setting with lots of green spaces and Rectory Park of course! Good points – Very quiet area, good for families. A couple of supermarkets (Tesco Express and Lidl) within walking distance. Transport links are reasonable. There is a bus stop just at the end of Rectory Park Avenue with two buses to Northolt Station (central line). This works for me as I commute into the city. Very little antisocial behaviour in the two and half years living on this development. Bad points – Parking on this development is atrocious. Very difficult to find on street parking but this is meant to be a car free development. Issue could have easily been resolved if this was a permit holder zone.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
Had I known parking was going to be this big of an issue, I would have purchased a parking bay. I’m still interested in buying a bay but apparently there are none available.
How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:
I did raise some minor issues but never heard anything back
