Re: Knighton Park Road

I already posted my solution Was that "restrict access to the road"? How do you plan to prohibit me from parking there whether I'm visiting Hexagon or a friend without further inconveniencing other residents. Stuart Where have I suggested any attempt to prohibit anything? The effect is better obtai...

If WHSmith didn’t have such a dowdy approach to retail they might have been a company with the foresight and ability to make a profit in that space.

Downham, Bromley Rd Post Office has a Subway sandwich shop and an off licence!
It is not operated by WH Smith.

Re: Knighton Park Road

I already posted my solution. For those who think there is no problem... it is outside my house where the fisticuffs generally happen along with the regular collisions. On average there is a collision once a fortnight. The screaming of abuse and fisticuffs are about as frequent. I have never seen a...

I sampled the modified Post Office. What a joke! Shabby and down at heel. They have just stripped out the fixtures and installed a little booth... The same limited range of stationery as before...

Re: Live Sydenham Train Departures

The default, on the National Rail system, is to offer all Sydenham stations and offer alternatives. That, to me, is a nuisance. I have, each time, to remove the alternatives and select "Sydenham London". A most annoying feature of the National Rail system is that it frequently offers circuitous rout...

Re: Knighton Park Road

I would like to know who has priority on the high street then? If the flats above and the retail units below helped pay for it, how dare anyone have a greater right to use it? Scandalous :wink: Also, I have lived in KPR for quite a few years, and there really isn’t a problem. I have lived in KPR fo...

Re: Knighton Park Road

Yes, but it's not an ongoing annual charge that a householder pays for maintenance assuming the road is adopted, or at least the new house I bought where the road was adopted carried no such obligation. If you are paying annual road maintenance charges then it's outwith my sphere of knowledge as to...

Your concept of parking being 'owned' by house owners leaves tenants with no right to park, nor flat dwellers or social housing tenants. Gosh.
How do you work that out? There is no mention of ownership of parking... merely mention of who paid for it to be there.

...[clip]... Most people do not realise the full cost of building the road is charged to the house when the house is built and each sale of the house, therefore, contains remuneration to the vendor for the cost of that road. ...[clip]...

Re: Knighton Park Road

But John, I have paid too. So why should you have priority over me? Pay something extra back to the community and you may have a case. Otherwise are you not exploiting me by semi-permanently taking o piece of public space for your exclusive use? Stuart You are venturing into very dangerous ground. ...

Re: Knighton Park Road

Like Bromley where they have to fork out (again) for a permit. No thanks. The road is paid for... and has not been repaired in over 50 years. Indeed. Paid by everyone for the use of everyone. Is it not unreasonable to ask those who wish to have exclusive use of a sought after 100 sq ft plot to cont...

Re: Knighton Park Road

John, A CPZ is a controlled parking zone. At a simple level, if you were trying to stop commuters (probably not in KPR from what you've said about Hexagon?) you could just have no parking except residents from 11-2 each weekday. That might work for Hexagon too? Someone who parked outside those hour...

John H - Have you been into Hexagon to have a quiet chat just to remind them of the parking restrictions? Sometimes things just get forgotten.
Forgetfulness is not the cause. This has prevailed since day one.

Are you about to call for a CPZ for KPR, John? I have no idea what a CPZ is However... it is high time something was done about the situation with Hexagon parking and the rat-runners that use our road.

Re: Knighton Park Road

I have lived in Knighton Park Road for more than 30 years and parking is a nightmare for most of my neighbours. My next door neighbour tells me she frequently has to park in Kent House Road. The nightmare really began to get worse when Hexagon built their ugly cheap and nasty building on the corner....
