"Agree with other posts.............SLUM OF THE FUTURE"

Figures just out show 40% of houses are rentals and this is not counting ADF rentals. Starting to look scruffy and no new development at shopping centre. Property values dropping like a stone and lots of vacant rentals.
Cons
  • Narrow Streets
  • ADF housing
  • No neighbourhood pride
  • Too many rentals

joanned6 I would like to know where you get your info from Burdell has less than half the crime of Deeragun and other areas of Townsville. We do have a few to many rentals but thats happening everywhere and as for the narrow streets, you must be thinking or North Shore and our blocks are larger than the new developements in other parts of the city.Add a comment...

"It is a dump."

Just a nightmare. Too many rentals and ADF properties which mean sleepless nights and all sorts of social problems, narrow streets and houses too close. Slum is putting it mildly. No public toilets in the unkempt parks and I wish we had never built here.
Cons
  • Narrow Streets
  • Covenants not upheld
  • People not knowing where it is
  • ADF housing
  • No neighbourhood pride
  • Too many rentals

"Rentville...."

Starting to look like a slum now with untidy properties and cars parked on narrow roads which makes it hard to manoeuvre. Most of the home owners around us have left and rentals are rife, properties prices have plummeted. There has been no new decent businesses added to the shopping centre. The km's of parks have no toilets so kids have to relieve themselves in the bushes. Amazing when the so called pirate park is aimed at tots. The open drains threaded thru the parks are breeding ground for mozzies, A slum of the future.

  • ADF housing
  • No neighbourhood pride

"A great place to raise kids!!"

We have lived in Meridian Court, Burdell for a year now and have found it to be a fantastic place to live, with a real family feel to it. Although we don't have children ourselves, it still brings a smile to your face when you hear children playing with other children in the neighbourhood. Streets are wide, traffic is to a minimum, house blocks are large and most importantly, neighbours are friendly. We have no hesitations in recommending Burdell a suburb to live, it is close enough to schools, shopping centres, a public pool and parks without having that 'closed in' feel that you would get in older suburbs. Not only that, it is easy as pie to jump on the Bruce Hwy and you are within 10 minutes of all the major shopping centres. Hope onto the Ring Road and you are 7mins to the Hospital, Army Barracks, University, and the Ross River. With the onging development of North Shore Estate even more convenient shopping and leisure activities will also be available in less than 5mins drive! All this without compromising on the valued "Family Neighbourhood" feel. 10/10 stars!
Pros
  • Quiet neighbourhoods
  • Large house blocks
  • Friendly people
Cons
  • No close dog parks
  • People not knowing where it is
