Bad service

It takes a few weeks for the landlord to fix problems in flats like security and leaks. And the lift keeps breaking down and takes a long time to fix. The telephone line is always busy and not open at weekends. There is a leak at the moment that’s hasn’t been fixed

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

There are no shops since the building started. There was a market before Christmas last year which was good but all stopped now.

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

More insight in to tenants needs

Advantages and Disadvantage of development

Review Date Sep 2021

The facilities like the park were set up quickly and opened fast for children to enjoy and the design choice is modern while retaining an aspect of nature and the location next to the river is beautifully situated. The property management could be a bit better

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

There is a lack of property management and anti social behaviour and not enough play areas for children, parking availability is ample, bin collection is OK and traffic noise is OK.

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

Don’t be afraid to ask for help when it comes to housing problems or repairs.

A lovely area with just a few issues.

The design is lovely, as of a few years ago we’ve been allowed to customise the interior. But as soon as I did that, our roof started to leak, ruining my brand new floor. They knocked a hole in the roof to find the source but couldn’t find it. I had a hole in my roof for 2 years. They came to replace the wall but it was too late. As for the area, it is maintained well by the lovely staff. They try their best for everyone in the area.

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

There are a lot of places you can shop and a lot of places you can enjoy views. Parking isn’t an issue but for family and friends it’s near impossible. Noise is okay but be ready for kids playing. Bin collection has never been an issue, they do come quite early and because the area is so closed in, it echoes alot.

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

I wish I knew about the area just a touch more. It seemed empty at first but the updated it quickly.
