We were recommended to move to Waterside Park by an estate agent. We have always lived locally but we have a disabled member of our family and needed a home with specific adaptions. We moved into our house when it was brand new and we spoke directly with the developer to ensure everything met our needs. The house has a lift installed and the kitchen units and sinks have been lowered, we asked before moving in for the kitchen units to be made slightly higher and this was arranged. Whilst the kitchen is ridiculously small with the lift there is not much else they could have done on the configuration. The garden is also really small but is big enough.
We have had a few issues but the management company always sorts them out quickly and we think we get really good value for money for our rent. There is a problem with the windows as they always seem to jam but I don’t think we have actually reported it. We are allowed to paint and change the flooring as well as decorate how we want and we really love living in the house and development.
Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:
Good location lots of shops local. Unfortunately people in the local neighbourhood reduce its attractiveness. Overall a nice neighbourhood and I like that there is a lot of nature in the area and wildlife.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
The park in the estate was destroyed years ago and there have been no efforts to reinstate the equipment.
