Moving out soon but great while it lasted!

Verified Resident

I have been living here for 2 years, the building feels modern snd spacious, and the bedrooms are really large which is rare for London. As i have a private car and company car, i cant keep both cars in the developments. Parking wardens come very often

It can get quite busy but its quite in our develooment.

Parking issues, however I did like the park which was made after i moved in.

Great value for money

Verified Resident

The flats are really modern and well built. They’ve been nicely designed and the rooms are spacious. It is great value for money and so far we’re pretty happy living here. No problems so far however our neighbours can get a bit noisy!

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The nearby transport is well accessible and there is sufficient shopping stores close by. The only annoying thing is that the crossing over across the street is not great because it’s so small and not very accessible.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

There is nothing I would have wanted to know before moving here

New resident in safe area

Bus stop is close by and quite frequent. The main road is quite close, so it feels not so safe wt time. It would be great to open a walkway to the other side, hospital close by which is an addition. Parking can be limited. Fob keys are password protected. No building management office on site however people are patrolling, feels secure

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

There is limited crossing so people flip over the railings which can be dangerous.

Not enough security

Verified Resident

I like how this area is near alot of public transport system which I could use to go to my work. I also like how there is a lot of communal areas nearby. Although I do dislike the activities that the local people in the area do as it makes me scared to live here.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

I like how there are a lot of communal areas, the only problem I have is that there is not enough security

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

I wish I would have researched the history of the area before moving here.

Ticks all the boxes for me!

Verified Resident

Nice and clean. More than enough room for me in my flat. Could be a little quieter as there can be a number of ambulances from hospital next door, but this is only an issue when the windows are open in the summer.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Like the new flats. But having to walk through the underpasses to get to any shops is inconvenient. All clean and safe.
nice location for kids
But not much to do

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Nothing, lived here for four years now and its all been fine really

Property review

Verified Resident

Corner shop is quite limited. It is quite good value for money when we started renting . Shared ownership of property with the government where i have 90%. We have to pay addition rent for remaining 10%. But it still good value for money wit asking price,

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Nothing is really close by, which doesnt feel so bad as i drive but lidl by the station

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Since this was a government build, i was surprised that the remaining percentage.

Poor security in the area

Verified Resident

The material of which the building is made of is really cheap so we can’t really put much on the walls. I reckon the building won’t last longer than 50 year. The design is okay but it’s really not spacious at all. We also only get 1 parking space unfortunately and I’ve even had a fine before only because I forgot to put the parking permit in the car.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Dislike the fact that there is not much parking in the area available, so we can’t really have friends and family over. There is no CCTV at all and so security is really poor. The location is good however because the station is nearby.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

That parking availability is terrible and the area is not very secure .

Great location but average development

Verified Resident

Flats well designed like good space for families and a private play area for children within the central courtyard, which is very safe and secure. Development is nice and quiet. No maintenance issues. Problem with hot water with £40 a month fee…

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Like is close to centre and shops, and there is a nice park. Dislike that the area can be lairy. Overall good location though, and has a good primary school a 2 min walk from flat.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Sold parking space, which means i have had to get rid of my car… bit convenient. The nearest free parking is about a mile away!!

Perfect location and nice flat

Verified Resident

The property is very a spacious and is aesthetically nice in terms of its design. The windows are good keeping the property well ventilated and bright. In general the flats are pretty good and worthy of its value.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Everything we need in terms of shopping and schools is closeby to us and is within walkable distance. The transport is also very good via train and bus. However the cleanliness of the area is very compromised so could be better. There have also been 1 or 2 issues where non residents have come inside the building and disconnected the water supplies which was very problematic for a few days so security could improve.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

There is nothing I wished I would have known before moving here
