As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

    It’s very dark around there, plus the empty ground floors mean little ambient light. I hope the landlord will address that as its not especially pleasant around there in the day let alone after dark.

      It’s actually a nice area. Yes there was a murder but you can’t say it isn’t pleasant .

        Oh don’t get me wrong the developments have really improved the area and its a far cry from the old days when elderly souls such as me wouldn’t dare wander past the comedy club. Unfortunately it’s still rather dark around there – even along the river at Greenwich where the fitness club resided there’s now a patch of darkness. The Creekside developments are necessary or Deptford would have remained the poor neighbour of Greenwich in perpetuity.

    I don’t know why fromthemurkydepths has turned into the ‘crime desk’. I would much prefer it if the focus returned to housing and development related matters.
