"Not impressed"

As with all suburbs it depends who you live next to. Unfortunately, I am surrounded by irresponsible pet owners. On one side the dogs bark almost continually, high pitched yapping. On the other side the pet owner dumps their pet's feaces at the back of their yard alongside my fence so all I smell all day is urine and crap, to the point where I csn't open back doors and windows. The stench is particularly nice in summer. Behind me the dog owner has bred his dog to be agressive and somehow his dog has an elevated perch so it csn look over the high fence into my yard and growl and bark viciously when I am out there.

I don't find it to be a safe area. I was accosted by someone in the park nearby who followed me and requested things that made me feel very anxious. Now I feel worried going for walks.

The lack of footpaths is ridiculous leaving me to walk on paths so as not to feel like I am trespassing on someone's property, as what should be footpaths is turned into extended front yards. I don't know how people walk around with prams and or young children: very dangerous.

On that, there are a lot of hoon drivers speeding around without concern and I am always having to rush across the road for fear a car will come round the corner and wipe me out. To me it seems like a 'yobbo' area.

I dislike the area very much and will be moving out.
Pros
  • Pet problems
  • Neighbour problems
Cons
  • Could do with a few more cement footpaths
  • must look out for traffic from side streets
