Re: Any news on Mamma Dough?

Nope, no objections made by the Sydenham Society.

Change to a shop front is a planning matter and has to be approved by Lewisham planners.

Re: New Aldi approved in Bell Green

For the record - that is if anyone on this forum is interested - the Sydenham Society welcomed Nando's. It did ask Lewisham if there was going to be any takeaway or home delivery as it was not clear on the original application. This was clarified by Nando's and accepted by Planning. At no stage was ...

Re: Ignition Brewey needs our help!

Soft launches are usually by invitation only so that the new Team can iron out teething troubles before opening the door to all and sundry,

As Prince says 'From the 15th, they will be in full-opening mode'. Thursday and Friday evenings, and Saturday 2pm-10pm.

Re: Degradation of Sydenham Road

You wont get me joining a conversation often on STF nowadays - and please don't ask me why. However, I'm very happy to join this conversation (at least at present), as it is very close to my heart. I agree the state of the pavements is lousy, having walked the high street with the Sydenham Assembly ...

Re: Toys R Us

At the risk of another side-swipe, I cannot imagine why anyone would think the Sydenham Society would object to an empty retail warehouse on the Bell Green out of town park being re-occupied, or why the council would either for that matter. I think there may be a problem with it being re-occupied, b...

Re: Alfred Pub

The Sydenham Society did not make any comments to Lewisham about this application, although it was discussed. However our feeling was that it was over-development and we have no problem with the decision to refuse for the reasons given - see below: R E A S O N (S) F O R R E F U S A L 1. The proposed...

Re: New Builds on Sydenham High Street

The original owners were registered in Guernsey. The site was bought out and is being developed by a UK company - Zanara.
