Re: Petition to Support the Redevelopment of All Inn One

i was properly taken to task last night on a technical point. A robber armed with a gun held up the pub late at night approximately 10 years ago. In my defence, I don't think the robber was one of the regulars and therefore does not fit into my definition of "locals". Just setting the record straight.

Re: Petition to Support the Redevelopment of All Inn One

Can’t wait for the response from the “Real Friends” of All Inn One Why would FohSoc's report need a reply ?

From Lewisham Planning: 18 Jan 2019 "Today we received confirmation from Kier’s agent that the appeal against the Council’s refusal of planning permission for an Aldi store and SGN offices on the site of the gasholders at Bell Green has been withdrawn. We understand that works will instead proceed ...

There are various consultation events, none of which are in South London which is not acceptable.

Ella Kissi-Debrah - A Very Sad Death & a Welcome Reversal

Not quite Sydenham but close enough to have a very direct and extremely important bearing. This link at the BBC reports that the Attorney General has decided to announce a fresh inquest after hearing new evidence linking Ella Kissi-Debrah's death to illegal levels of air pollution near her home in s...

Excellent point on TredownMan's part. It is difficult to see this web-page as anything other than a politically motivated statement with little or no grounding in reality. Heritage England (HE) does NOT concur with LBL's view on the curtilage issue, proponents from SydSoc have been pushing the point...

A portion of the web-site commentary at the same link says this: "SGN are open to retaining part of the structure on site to acknowledge the heritage of the gasholders. We are very supportive retaining part of the structure and has begun a dialogue with SGN as to the feasibility of this. Lewisham Co...

that road is the south circular, and is TfL road, so road owner - TfL, Bridge owner - Network Rail - therefore actually nothing to do with Lewisham at all In the case of the Forest Hill mural and for reasons that are not clear, the bridge and a small area on the other side of the road passing under...

Re: New Aldi approved in Bell Green

I'm not sure what 'the process' would be - I don't think it would be the planning process unless you were painting on residential buildings or using illumination. Getting funding from council sources might be a different matter if they don't like your design but other sources of funding can always ...

Re: New Aldi approved in Bell Green

The mural unfortunately ultimately petered out due to the “conservation area” which the station approach resides in. The council were shown the designs submitted for the vote and said they didn’t want any of them really and that it didn’t keep with the “conservation area”. JMLF is being discrete he...

Re: Payless, Sydenham

The vehicle has an MOT that will expire in Feb 2019.

It is insured.

It has a road fund license.

The vehicle registration is known to UK systems.
