I’ve recently moved into the Woodridge area and I’m surprised at how quiet it is. We do have a neighbor with teens who sometimes has parties/loud-ish music but that’s no biggie. Haven’t heard any barking dogs. On my morning runs I probably see one or two cats. I’ve moved here from Mernda where all the above mentioned issues are real issues - I mean call the police for loud doof doof music on a Monday night type of issues. My impression of my new neighborhood is that it’s fine.
Yes. In the last 2 years, there has been increased in barking dogs and night prowling cats. The new residents coming into Eltham are not environmentally conscious nor animal friendly. They let their cats prowl at night, killing off birds/geckos/lizards etc. This is a huge problem.
