Low safety but overall a good place to live in

Verified Resident

I have the canal view because my flat faces the canal. Some break ins have happened recently, I heard . Sometimes homeless people sleep in the garage, the lift was broken for 4 days. There are bins in the common area and we have to drop off the rubbish there. The parking permit is for both tenants and owners.

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

It is calm, 10 min away from the train station. Tesco is the nearest supermarket just on the other side of the canal. It takes 10 minutes to get to the public transport stops.

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

It is a bit far from a public transport

High service charge

Verified Resident

We pay a lot of service charge. Parking area is not clean enough . The building managenent have a phone number you can use to call. The bins are not promptly cleaned. My car was broken into so safety is not very high. There are no CCTV in the development which is an issue.

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

I like the view, we have a nice river over, there is a park just 2- 3 min away .

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

I wouldn’t expect that the view would be so good!

Perfect for retirement

Neighbours are very friendly, however we don’t interact much. No issues

Agency doesn’t always amend the problems with the electrics in terms of with the home electrics as bulbs aren’t the universal as most so it is hard to find.
Issues with toilets and cookers have been responded with very quickly.

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

Area is quite plea sent shopping centres are quite close as retired

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

I knew nothing of the area as I never lived in London.

Shane there is no SkyQ satellite to this building

Verified Resident

Recently we had some issues with a person breaking in to the estate and spray painting the walls which building management took 2 days to take him out, I’m sure you can imagine was quite scary! Also building iservices not equipped to have SkyQ boxes or have satellite so can not get the best TV service. Also the area isn’t regularly cleaned for how high the service charge is.

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

The area is nice and quiet and I really enjoy going for walks down the canal

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

The internet connection is quite restictive as it is a lot slower than I expected.

Beautiful area however very small parking spots

Good size accommodation. Building managment clean it ebery week however it took a while to fix the lift. We sometimes have unsavoury people around the development abd parking area could be cleaner . All in all is maintained. However the parking spaces are very small especially visitor parking.

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

I like it because its residential and quiet . Two stations are up the road so communication is great . There is s a river snd park to the property that are lovely. Also there is TeSco, Iceland and morrison within walking distance.

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

I have to get a parking ticket twice even though I have a permit .

Waterside Park Yiewsley

The development has matured and is better than it was before. Lots of new builds in the area so it has ptarmigan pressure on amenities and traffic. I still like it though. It has good transport links and access to canal and green areas.

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

It’s quiet. Access to transport is great. Many supermarkets on the high street. Canal and green areas.
On the improvement side, the coscillator should invest on cleanlines.

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

Nothing.
